The Hill College continuing education department recently graduated five nurse aide students from the program: Ashely Andrez of Cleburne, Rebecca Campbell of Granbury, Brooklyn Kimball of Cleburne, Reese Pate of Alvarado and Jackeline Powell of Joshua.
The CNA program is a 112-hour program — 72 hours of lecture and 40 hours of clinical — that costs $666. The training provides the skills, knowledge and abilities essential to provide basic care to residents of long-term care facilities.
Students are also prepared for the state certification exam for CNA offered by Texas Health and Human Services Department and will be prepared for entry-level employment in long-term care facilities, doctor’s offices and hospitals.
“Certified Nurse Aides are needed in hospitals as well as in entities that provide long-term care,” HC Dean of Continuing Education Stephen Pape said.
This course will also be offered again at the Johnson County Campus in Cleburne from Oct. 7 to Dec. 10, Feb. 3 to April 13 and June 1 to Aug. 3. Additionally, this course will be offered Hill County Campus in Hillsboro from March 23 to May 9.
