I found my Love at CNA- Brittany, Kristen and Zillah

My best friend, Kristen, and I both applied to the CNA Office Administration Program and started together 2016. It wasn’t long into our first semester that we met another classmate, Zillah. She was someone we instantly connected with because of her kindness and humour. She was also a little older than us, so not only did we make a new friend, but a mother figure as well. All three of us completed our program together, specializing in Medical Administration in our second year. We spent countless hours laughing (and sometimes crying) together while completing homework and assignments. She quickly introduced us to her family and invited us to her home for many meals. No surprise that we all started Eastern Health together in 2018. Zillah took us on a trip to Labrador where we went ice fishing, snowmobiling, and even saw a polar bear! I often say that when I applied to CNA it changed my life. Not only did I graduate and get a great job with Eastern Health as a clerk, but I am forever grateful that I met lifelong friends.
