    You didn't need to be rude about it. Yes, I am a NAIT graduate and no, it wasn't expressly taught that this was within the scope of practice. Might I add, I graduated with a 3.9 GPA and was on the Dean's List both years, so I was paying attention.

    Sorry for my rudeness... it's obvious that the NAIT program is at fault.
