Graduation at CADH is just around the corner! What does this mean? To some, it may mean the end of a time that was rewarding, yet challenging, where an end point was the focus. To others, it may mean the start of a bright career, with further growth as a professional. The common denominator to both views is growth and learning.
As educated individuals, one does not stop learning, whether in a formal setting as in a school, or independently in a non-formal setting. Learning does not only happen in an educational institution, but also occurs in everyday circumstances, even when you are not expecting to learn. By choosing the dental hygiene program at CADH, one consciously makes a decision to attend a recognized, accredited program to fulfill one’s dream in becoming a dental hygienist. At the conclusion of the program, you can obtain the designation of a registered dental hygienist when registering with the provincial regulatory body of your choosing. However, during the program, in addition to the content that you learn, you learn a lot about yourself as an individual, which you may not have known before entering the program. Managing your time so that you maximize every moment of the day to get the best possible outcomes from the program is an example of daily informal learning. This too is learning.
The key is to embrace every opportunity and to learn from it, whether the opportunity presents itself, or one seeks out an opportunity make the most of it!
