Additional Requirements and Considerations
CPR (Basic Life Support - BLS):
Students must provide evidence of current BLS certification prior to commencing clinical training. BLS certification must remain current throughout clinical training therefore it is recommended that certification be obtained just prior to clinical training. The BLS certification course that meets this requirement must be designed for individuals who will be health care providers. The NAIT Continuing Education Course that meets this requirement is CPRS100.
Students are required to be immunized against vaccine-preventable diseases, as determined by the Alberta Health. After acceptance into the program, students will be given further information on requirements. If you do not meet the immunization requirements, your work integrated learning experience (clinical training) may be refused by a clinical site, and there may be restrictions to the clinic experience, which may ultimately impede your progress in the program.
Police Information Check:
Students are required to provide a current Police Information Check (also referred to as a Security Clearance or Criminal Record Check) which must include a Vulnerable Sector Search. Please do not proceed with the Police Information Check until an offer of acceptance and follow-up instructions have been issued by the program. The Police Information Check is only considered valid when reviewed by a NAIT official within 90 days of completion. If you do not meet the police information check requirements, your work integrated learning experience (clinical training) may be refused by a clinical site, which may ultimately impede your progress in the program.
Additional Requirements and Information:
Prospective students for the MRI program must consider personal physical conditions that may limit their ability to perform the role safely. Any prospective students with back, arm, shoulder, wrist or neck problems or significant health challenges should consider their options carefully before applying and are advised to consult with the program. A prospective MRI student also must meet the safety requirements to work in an MRI environment. Please reference the MRI screening form for clarification or consult the program if more information is required.
