Academic Partnerships

As part of the CNA Certification Program’s continued commitment to nurses, we are proud to partner with academic institutions across Canada.

Partner institutions offer courses and programs that meet our new eligibility requirements for 300 hours of formal specialty education, which aim to make certification more accessible. All the post-basic courses/programs listed below align with the CNA Certification Program’s specialty exams, are offered online, and have sufficient enrolment to ensure a robust and reliable learning experience.

This partnership initiative strengthens the education sector and helps ensure Canada has the talented and skilled nursing workforce it needs. Our educational institutions partners include:

BCIT (British Columbia Institute of Technology)

Douglas College

Humber College

MacEwan University

Academic partnerships help CNA strengthen nursing education to ensure Canada has the talented, skilled and flexible workforce it needs. Learn more about the CNA Certification Program.
