CNA respiratory therapy program loses accreditation

June 30, 2017

First year admissions to the College of the North Atlantic’s respiratory therapy program have been suspended by the college after the program's accreditation was withdrawn. The Council on Accreditation for Respiratory Therapy Education placed the respiratory therapy program on a one-year probation in 2016, but found this year that not enough progress was made by the institution to keep the accreditation. “We are currently exploring the full impacts of CoARTE’s decision to withdraw our accreditation and how this will affect our current students and faculty members," said Bill Radford, CNA’s Senior Vice-President of Academic and Chief Learning Officer.
