Portage nursing program approved for CAF’s Subsidized Education


Portage College’s Practical Nursing (PN) program has been granted approval for subsidized education through the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Accreditation, Certification, and Equivalency program. Through a partnership between Portage and CAF, military personnel will have the opportunity to pursue the practical nursing program as they potentially prepare for a military career in health care. Portage states that applicants can also explore the Operating Room Technician career path offered by the CAF. “The subsidized education program will empower military members to enhance their skill sets, broaden their horizons, and unlock new career possibilities, all while serving their country,” said a statement from Portage.
