DPH found Capital’s CNA training in compliance based on program materials for the 132-hour  nurse aide course that can often be the entry point for students to move on to study in associate degree in nursing and careers as registered nurses.   A site visit and review of the curriculum assessed the program in compliance with the federal Medicare/Medicaid regulations and the state public health code.

Coordinated by Ruth Krems, RN, the course is offered in six-week sessions throughout the year,  in the  classroom and lab and clinical instruction. It is designed to provide the student with the fundamental knowledge and skills needed to function as a certified nurse aides.

Congratulations to Continuing Education, Ruth Krems and the instructors in the CNA program for meeting the standards.
