Hear from our Alumni

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, I knew that I needed to broaden my understanding of the diagnosis, treatment, and long-term management of mental health conditions. The Mental Health and Addictions Certificate delivers exceptional quality education with courses curated by experts in the field. I also had the opportunity to grow my network and continue to learn from my peers.

I have recently completed the Certificate in Leadership and Management.  As a Director at a hospital, I found the content directly related to my day to day work and I was able to add skills learned to my practice.  The online modules were easy to access and easy to follow along.  The work load was manageable and course instructors were easily accessible.  The certificate is a great way to build your portfolio, increase your awareness and competence and continue your journey of learning.

I completed the Certificate in Mental Health and Addictions for Nurse Practitioners and found the program to be quite pertinent to my role as a geriatrics nurse practitioner working in inpatient and outpatient settings.  The information was clearly presented, the staff were extremely supportive of my learning, and the assignments were aligned with the materials taught in the courses.
