SK invests $51.2M into expanding health care training opportunities

The Government of Saskatchewan has announced a $51.2M investment to expand health care training opportunities in the province. The funding will add new training seats and support the development of four new training programs: Occupational Therapy, Speech Language Pathology, Physician Assistant and Respiratory Therapy. The investment will also be used to expand the number of seats available in nursing programs at postsecondary institutions such as North West College, Saskatchewan Polytechnic, and the University of Regina. “Expanding nursing education seats not only enriches the educational journey of aspiring nurses by granting them access to top-notch instruction but also serves as a proactive response to the growing demand for skilled health care professionals,” said North West President Dr Eli Ahlquist.
