Our low tuition rate of $726 per semester means keeping more of the green where it belongs: in your pocket.

Small Class Size

With an average class size far smaller than what you see in a typical university program, you won’t be lost in the crowd. In fact, one-on-one time with instructional staff will help you be all you can be in our classrooms.


Your CNA diploma can take you places. CNA has dozens of credit transfer agreements with institutions here in Canada and around the world.
