En­rol­ment up at CNA Car­bon­ear cam­pus

The Compass - - EDITORIAL - editor@CB­N­com­pass.ca

Col­lege of the North At­lantic’s Car­bon­ear cam­pus wit­nessed a dra­matic in­crease to the stu­dent pop­u­la­tion this fall.

Ac­cord­ing to the school, 232 stu­dents were en­rolled this Septem­ber. That’s a 73 per cent in­crease over the stu­dent pop­u­la­tion in Septem­ber 2014, when 134 stu­dents were en­rolled in Car­bon­ear.

CNA spokesman Roger Hu­lan told The Com­pass the in­creased en­rol­ment was spread through ex­ist­ing pro­grams and three new pro­grams in Car­bon­ear — the con­struc­tion/in­dus­trial elec­tri­cian, per­sonal care at­ten­dant and prac­ti­cal nurse pro­grams.

There were 81 stu­dents at the CNA cam­pus in Pla­cen­tia to start the fall, three stu­dents be­low en­rol­ment fig­ures for Septem­ber 2014. Hu­lan said as a cam­pus with pro­grams start­ing at dif­fer­ent points over the next few months, Pla­cen­tia will likely see that pop­u­la­tion in­crease 20 per cent by March of next year.
