Why CNA?

With our low tuition rate of just $726 for most program offerings, we’re one of the most affordable post-secondary institutions in the country! We have average class sizes far smaller than what you see in a typical university program, meaning our students don’t get lost in the crowd. In fact, one-on-one time with instructional staff helps our students be all they can be in our classrooms!

Our programs give students the skills necessary to succeed in the workforce. Through apprenticeship programs, field placements, on-the-job training or co-op work terms, our students leave CNA with solid hands-on work experience. And a CNA diploma can take you places! We have dozens of credit transfer agreements with institutions around the world, and here at home allowing our graduates to seamlessly enter into degree programs with advanced standing.

From Wabush to Luxembourg, Fort McMurray to Venice – our alumni are everywhere! So whether our graduates want to stay home near the ocean or trek the globe, an education from CNA is a great starting point for any wanderer.

Graduating from great CNA programs means our alumni are always part of a big extended family. But don’t worry, we tease less than actual siblings.

The majority of our graduates find employment in their field, with many staying right here in Newfoundland and Labrador. Most find jobs within three months of graduation!
