College of the North Atlantic (CNA) and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) in Calgary say they have a solution in place so students enrolled in CNA’s respiratory therapy program can continue their studies at the Prince Philip Drive campus in St. John’s.

CNA and SAIT have finalized a memorandum of understanding that outlines an option for students with no disruption to their studies, CNA said in a news release. Starting this week, SAIT will implement its respiratory therapy curriculum delivered by SAIT faculty members.

“We are delighted to partner with SAIT as we provide a solution for our students,” said Radford Bill Radford, CNA’s senior vice-president of academics and chief learning officer. “With this agreement, students who graduate from the tespiratory yherapy program will be able to write the national certification exam and take on key roles within Newfoundland and Labrador’s health system, and beyond.”
