Due to a growing need for certified nursing assistants, or CNAs, in Huntington County, Ivy Tech Community College Northeast will offer a CNA class in Huntington. It will prepare those interested in working as nursing assistants with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential for providing basic care in extended care facilities, assisted living facilities, hospitals, and home health agencies—all under the direction of a licensed nurse.
Those who successfully complete the course will be eligible to sit for the Indiana State Department of Health certification exam for nursing assistants.
The class will meet from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily March 16 to 20 at Horace Mann Elementary School (2480 Waterworks Road, Huntington). Clinical time will be Mondays to Fridays 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. March 23 to April 9 in an area nursing home. The State certification exam will be April 17.
