“Thank so much for all that your Institute is offering to so many young students and those wishing to renew. I am thinking of advancing with the assistance of de Souza, regardless that I am now 61 years old but do have over 40 years under my belt and learning every day. Thank you again.”
“I was diagnosed with cancer. I think that people who are diagnosed with cancer deserve the best care that a nurse can give them. There’s one thing that I wish I had when I went through cancer and it was a nurse who had a bit of training that de Souza Institute offers in psychosocial support.”
“As nurses in Ontario, we are fortunate to have the guidance, mentorship, and financial support of the de Souza Institute to augment our theory and clinical skills. Becoming a de Souza Nurse has given me the enhanced knowledge, skills, and judgment to support those living with cancer. I encourage all nurses who care for cancer patients in Ontario to seek the de Souza Designation.”
"The de Souza nursing institute is an Oncology nurse’s dream come true! The de Souza Nurse program has not only enhanced my knowledge and skill, but improved my confidence and resume. The innovative learning opportunities enabled me to learn with colleagues from diverse backgrounds province wide, participate in sharing best practice, and create networks for future learning while being led by educators who are experts in their field. I have experienced learning never before available to me."
"I started one [de Souza] course which lead to another and then which lead to achieving my CNA Oncology certification last year, now Hospice Palliative Care, as well as going for my university degree. de Souza has been inspirational to my believing "I could" and is travelling the journey with me."
"The learning materials were sufficient and the time for the prep was just enough. During study I learned a lot of things about cancers and the treatments that I did not know before, hence expanding my knowledge base. When I went to write the CNA oncology certification exam I could not believe my eyes, because I felt that I was well prepared thanks to you. Keep doing the fantastic job that you are doing. Many oncology nurses write the exam because they know they will get all the support and help they need from de Souza in order to become oncology nurses and make difference in people affected with the disease."
“I call myself a ‘de Souza fanatic’ because I have taken just about every course or program they offer. It’s amazing to feel confident that I’m providing the safest and best possible cancer care for my patients.”
