Salinas, CA, April 30, 2013 - Central Coast College is pleased to announce approval by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (ACCET) to start a Nursing Assistant training program. The nine-week course prepares students to work as part of a healthcare team delivering direct patient care in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and skilled nursing facilities, and will prepare students to take the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) exam.
"CNA's are one of the most important parts of the team. Nurses and CNA's work hand-in-hand to ensure the delivery of high quality care to all patients they serve," said Rose Herrerra, RN, BSN, Nurse Supervisor at Natividad Medical Center's Acute Rehabilitation Center. "We value their effort, commitment, compassion, and their desire to help patients in need."

STAR stands for the criteria the award honors: long-time Supporters of CAPPS, Tirelessly working to promote the private postsecondary sector, Absolutely dedicated to education and their students, and Role models for the private postsecondary sector's leaders.

The class will be taught 100% in Spanish and extensive practice both inside and outside of class will be expected.

work experience and
Medical Terminology in English.

Are there classes in the summer?
Yes, our students go to school year-round with occasional days off for seasonal vacations, holidays, etc. Student holidays are consistent with public school holidays whenever possible, a factor those with school-age children appreciate.
"On a daily basis there are classes that you attend, and the classes are small, which is great because the students do the one-on-one, which is very important. As you look at schools now-a-days they are over crowded and that is a downside. Communication with your teacher is really important here (at CCC)."
