Course Description

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, this information session will be offered online using video streaming as a temporary solution to keep our community safe. The Hospital Unit Clerk program will be in-person in Fall 2020 at the Interurban Campus, following strict measures of social distancing with small class sizes and a large classroom.


The Hospital Unit Clerk Certificate Program is a 335 hour part-time program that prepares graduates for the challenging and rewarding career of looking after the administrative and clerical requirements of a hospital unit. Skilled Unit Clerks (also known as Nursing Unit Assistants) who bring an excellent work ethic, attention to detail, compassion for people and a positive attitude to their jobs are needed in our health care system! These positions offer a competitive union wage (currently $23.51 per hour + 12.2% for casual work= $26.37), flexible hours, a fast-paced interactive environment, and an interesting variety of duties.

Registering for and attending an Information Session is required for students wanting to apply for this program. During this informative session, the Program Coordinator will share information and answer your questions.
