New Program at London, Ont. High School to Graduate PSWs to Help Alleviate Critical Staff Shortage


A new program at Montcalm Secondary School in London, Ontario, is set to graduate its first group of certified personal support workers (PSWs) in June, thanks to Sandra Briars, a nurse-turned-teacher who launched it last fall. The students are wrapping up the first of two eight-week placements to complete the certification program. "The need is unbelievable now... with COVID and the stress of the job for nurses and PSWs, it's just been incredible," said Briars of the PSW shortage in Canada.
