CNA program begins Jan. 24 at GHC

The Center for Continuing and Professional Education (CCPE) at Georgia Highlands College (GHC) will offer its Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) course from January 24 to March 30. 

The course, which will be taught at the Bartow County College and Career Academy, will prepare students to obtain their CNA certification. Upon completion of the course, students will qualify to sit for the State of Georgia CNA Certification exam. 

“Students will learn to assist patients with the activities of daily living, such as grooming, eating and safely moving about,” Administrative Assistant for Continuing Education Teresa McCoy said. “Students will also learn basic nursing skills, such as monitoring vital signs, assisting with procedures and gathering medical supplies.” 

Written communications, clinical competency and developing the ability to work as a member of a team are key components of the course. Supervised practice in campus and community facilities is also used to develop basic nursing skills. 

“Anyone interested in entering into the rewarding field of healthcare should consider taking this course,” Manager for the CCPE Whitney Puckett said. “Students of all ages and from all backgrounds often use the CNA certificate as a point of entry into a variety of careers.” 

Interested students must be 18 to enroll in this course. Space is limited in each course, but this program will be offered multiple times throughout the year.
