NorQuest graduate Clark Castello wanted more than just a career when he enrolled in the college’s Practical Nurse program – he wanted personal growth.

“My whole goal is to one day continue my education and earn my registered nurse degree. I now know that is something that can happen. NorQuest helped with my confidence. I will always remember what NorQuest did for me.”

Today, Clark is a licensed practical nurse at Edmonton’s Royal Alexandria Hospital and member of the operating room staff where working as a team is integral to patient care. It is that attention to teamwork where a NorQuest graduate really stands out. The concept is built into every aspect of learning at the college.

“I do know from experience that NorQuest offers small classes. That was important to me. I wanted to be treated more like a student and not just a number. And the instructors want to get to know you on a personal level. They believed in their students, gave me my confidence and a great support system.”
