After its first year, the Certified Nursing Assistant program at WCHS still has a strong heartbeat.Course instructor Lequita Maxwell reports 11 students graduated from the first-year program with 10 passing their state certification.“These students were very dedicated to the program and their goals of becoming a CNA,” said Maxwell. “We spent the first semester in the classroom learning skills, then the second semester was clinical rotations at Raintree Manor.”Completing the program required resiliency. Students worked at Raintree Manor every morning before school from 6 to 8:15 a.m. Students assisted nursing home residents in their needs.
