New nursing programme featured by Manchester Community College

June 1, 2017 by  

As part of its catalog for the Summer 2017, a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) certification preparation course will be offered by the Continuing Education division of Manchester Community College.

Once the course has been completed, students will be eligible to take the Connecticut state licensing examination, the passing of which qualifies the student to be certified.

Enrolling in a course to be a CNA enables students to obtain additional clinical experience, particularly for those who want to work in a home health care setting, hospital, or nursing home. A CAN assists patients with the activities of daily living and basic care, such as providing help with dressing, grooming, feedings, and exercising, as well as observing the conditions of their patients.

The instructor of the course is JoAnn Thulin, A.P.R.N, who has had over 20 years’ experience as a corporate healthcare nurse, a critical care nurse, and director of long-term care.

The course begins next Monday, June 5 and runs through Tuesday, July 13. Classes meet Monday through Thursday from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm, with clinical work for the course being carried out at a nursing facility in Glastonbury.

The college has no doubt turned to a catalog printing company to print a piece with more information about this course, as well as the other credit-free courses it offers.
