HCC students complete first weekend CNA class
Haywood Community College recently celebrated the completion of the first weekend Certified Nurse Aide I class. The course is a short-term training that prepares individuals to work as caregivers in a health care setting such as a nursing home, hospital, or home health care. Students attend 162 hours of instruction, 48 clinical hours and 114 classroom hours, taught by a registered nurse. This course is approved by the North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation.
"There was a definite need for a weekend class that would allow potential students to work and still train to be a CNA Il," said Sandy Fischer, HCC Allied Health coordinator.
The college will offer this option on an as needed basis.
Upcoming Nurse Aide I classes include:
— Aug. 20 through Dec. 3, 8:15 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Monday and Wednesday
— Aug. 19 through Dec. 4, 8:15 a.m.to 2:45 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday
