Wallace Community College-Sparks Campus in Eufaula recently pinned five new Certified Nursing Assistants in a ceremony held May 20. The students are ready to join teams at area healthcare facilities.

Students receiving their certificates were Lakesha Hunter, Princess Norris, Jakeila Screws, Katherine Paige, and Khrystal Pinkins. All of the graduates are from Eufaula.

Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) are very important members of the health care team. They work in nursing homes, home health agencies, hospitals, hospice organization, and other facilities providing health care to individuals. CNA instructors are Barbara Jackson and Earnestine Crews. Jackson is a Wallace Community College Associate Degree Nursing graduate.

This 25-day program provides classroom instruction and hands-on skills training to prepare CNAs to take the Alabama Nurse Aide Registry examination. Wallace Community College graduates find employment throughout the area and provide quality care to those who need it most.

To attend the CNA program, students must have a high school diploma or equivalent, pass a background check, and take a two-step TB skin test. Students must provide their own uniforms.
