Health Services

Health Services is a team of healthcare professionals and support staff that strive to provide friendly, accessible services to the NAIT community. Our goal is to provide excellence in care and to promote a safe, healthy learning and working environment.

We offer a variety of services to all students and staff. In the event of illness or injury, nurses are available to provide assessment and care. We can also help you find community resources, such as walk-in medical clinics, public health centres, hospitals, family doctors accepting new patients and a variety of other community services.

Nicotine replacement products

Thinking about cutting your craving but don’t know where to start? Perhaps you’ve already tried multiple times and know exactly how you’re going to quit. Either way, the Cut the Craving Tobacco Reduction Program is here to help support, guide and keep you motivated while you cut back or quit your tobacco use.

The Cut the Craving program includes

  • counselling
  • personalized quit smoking plans
  • nicotine replacement therapy products
  • quit kits

Happy and Healthy Program

Come into health services to join our Happy & Healthy Well-being program. Working with one of the nurses you will receive not only support in attaining your goals but the Happy & healthy – a Guide to your well-being. This guide provides practical information for those with a desire to learn new healthy habits, change unhealthy habits and gain awareness of the key factors that contribute to personal health and well-being. While you may choose to directly connect only with the area(s) that best suits your current needs after this initial visit, the hope is that you sign up for the three one hour information session series that will be led by student counselling, campus recreation services and NAIT’s dietitian. We would also love to see you back in health services to follow-up on how things are going with your goals.

Everyone who joins the program, attends sessions, and returns for follow-up will be entered in to win a prize!
