PORT HAWKES­BURY

(CP) — The Nova Sco­tia Com­mu­nity Col­lege is now of­fer­ing one of its pro­grams ex­clu­sively within a First Na­tion com­mu­nity.

The abo­rig­i­nal con­tin­u­ing care pro­gram will be of­fered on the Way­cobah First Na­tion beginning in April.

Tom Gunn, prin­ci­pal of the Strait area cam­pus, says grad­u­ates will be well-qual­i­fied. Stu­dents will be able to work in their com­mu­nity, in nurs­ing homes and in acute care.

The tu­ition-free, 35-week pro­gram is open to 20 abo­rig­i­nal stu­dents.
