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.

Although placement is never guaranteed, 75% of our 2010 graduates found employment in a field related to their training. All of our graduates receive placement assistance.
"I think it's a win-win. When I work with the interns at Central Coast College, it gives me the opportunity to have a six week on the job interview. It gives them the opportunity to see if my particular specialty interests them. And I think in the end we both win...either there's a job offer made or the employees take the experience and have something to put on their resume."
