  • Posted on October 2, 2017 at 11:04 pm

Become a successful Nurse or Pharmaceutical Technician by taking preparatory courses to ensure that you have the credentials to excel in your studies. More complex than courses after high school, college courses in pre health programs can help students transition easily into advanced health programs. Centennial College is rewarding students with an Ontario College Certificate from its Pre-Health (6815) program at the Ashtonbee campus. This connects seamlessly with the college’s Practical Nursing and Pharmacy Technician programs, with some courses available for transfer credits.

Under the School of Advancement, Centennial’s pre-health science program combines biology, chemistry, mathematics, and computers into a year’s program for high school graduates, new college students, and those who are wishing to pursue a new career in healthcare. It is a good introduction to the foundations that are neededfor students to fully understand advanced concepts and complete mathematical calculations in the field. Here are some program expectations:

– Biology concepts will be explored, including various biological mechanisms and their processes
– An understanding of the periodic table and the quantum mechanical model of the atom
– Computer course specifically targeted to healthcare professionals, where students will learn Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to create healthcare analysis, calculations, reports, and presentations
– Introduction to developmental psychology, emphasizing on the biological, psychological and sociocultural aspects of human development
– Knowledge and understanding of anatomical terminologies and fundamentals of human physiology, in preparation for the anatomy and physiology courses in the Nursing and Pharmaceutical Technician programs

Students need not be alarmed by the large amount of information learned in this program. It covers a wide range of subjects, but they are also targeted for a career in the healthcare sector, especially in nursing and pharmaceuticals. It is best to learn the basic principles, before advancing to higher course levels without the foundations to support your learning. This program is not about memorization, but it is about comprehending the concepts and having the ability to apply them in practical settings.

Program enrolment requirements are outlined below:

Owning a computer, is in no sense these days counted as an item of luxury. With the increase in user demands and gradual multiplication of application in industry, the use of computers and computer peripheral devices can be found in every sphere of human walk. Education, shopping, banking, health industry, transportation, security- name a place and computers are there.

With the curves rising for demands of computers and the emergence of manufacturers and computer peripherals suppliers who acknowledge and then respond to these needs, which include computer peripheral and mobile handheld computer accessories, the market is highly competitive and tilted on the consumer’s side.

Computer peripheral has a narrow meaning that refers only to the input output devices of a computer, whereas, computer accessories has a broader meaning, that refers, all the parts that support a computer which includes motherboards, sensors, chips, including all the input and output devices. This makes the two terms different in meaning. Some of the more common peripheral devices are printers, scanners, disk drives, tape drives, microphones, speakers, and cameras. Computer peripheral accessory can also include other computers on a network system.

Computer networking hardware typically refers to equipment facilitating the use of a computer network. Typically, this includes routers, adsl hardware, hubs, gateways, access points, network interface cards, network bridges, modems, ISDN adapters, bulk ethernet cable, firewalls and other related hardware. Wireless networking in the forms of wireless lan networking or wireless broadband networking has become increasingly popular, however, especially for portable and handheld devices.

Although other network technologies exist, Ethernet has achieved near-ubiquity since the mid-1990s. Sometimes the word ‘controller’ and ‘card’ is used interchangeably when talking about networking hardware support because the most common NIC is the Network Interface Card. Although ‘card’ is more commonly used, it is in less encompassing. The ‘controller’ may take the form of a network card that is installed inside a computer, or it may refer to an embedded component as part of a computer motherboard, a router, expansion card, printer interface, or a usb hub or USB device.

To reach out to a larger number of consumers, computer peripheral suppliers in UK have a new platform, working efficiently- thanks to world of online shopping. Online shopping provides range and flexibility in prices to computer networking hardware peripherals UK up to an extent of cash backs and some heavy discounts. Internet houses a wider scope to reach out for numerous options of cheap shopping sitting at home only.
