Career center names successful LNA students
MIDDLEBURY — The faculty and staff of the Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center Adult Education Program announce that the following students completed the Licensed Nurse Assistant certificate program during 2019 and were licensed by the Vermont State Board of Nursing:
Lindsay Delisle, Sabra Edwards, Daniel Field, Bob Foley, Penney Griffin-Kimball, Robert Grimm, Kayla Hoffman, Marie Jones, Jessica Kleptz, Kayla McCoy, Lashelle Merker, Dakota Odell, and Nicole Therrien. Addition students who completed their LNA training in December will be testing in the next few weeks.
Successful participants in this program learn the basics of assisting patients, body mechanics, ethics, medical scope of practice, and communication in the medical setting. Completion requires that students demonstrate proficiency in recognizing several life-threatening emergencies, administering CPR and using an AED, performing essential patient care procedures. They must also pass written and practical exams to demonstrate their knowledge and ability.
The Career Center will be offering LNA trainings for interested students starting Jan. 21 and again on March 16.
