I am the Director for Health and Wellness Programs at Nunavut Arctic College in Iqaluit. In addition to the Bachelor of Science in Arctic Nursing, and the Community Health Representative Certificate, the College has developped the following programs: Mental Health Diploma, Community Therapist Assistant Diploma, Maternity Care and Midwifery Diploma (a 4th year is being developped with a university), and Homecare and Continuing Care Certificate. It is important to note that the Inuit Culture is integrated in each program. I am always interested to hear about what is being done to support students' success. Thank-you. Nakurmiik.
