The Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) training program, a key component at the School of Workforce and Continuing Education, has been approved by the state Department of Public Health (DPH) through September 2018.
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.
