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.

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."
