Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) are currently in high demand on Martha’s Vineyard, and the need is projected to continue through the next decade. CNAs provide an invaluable service and play an important role in caring for elderly or disabled patients. In the growing field of health care, the ability to provide compassionate, responsible assistance to incapacitated people is a needed skill. Nurse Assistants find employment in nursing homes, hospitals, and rehabilitation facilities, or as home health aides, working directly with patients and under the supervision of Registered Nurses or Licensed Nurse Practitioners.
Please note: this class is limited to 10 seats, 4 of which are reserved for recipients of scholarships from Hospice & Palliative Care MV and Windemere. (See SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES below to apply for a scholarship). We will be offering the course again next semester, so even if you don’t make it into this class, please fill out our interest form and gather your required documents to be prepared for upcoming offerings!
