Information Sessions for Certified Nurse Aide Program at CCC

 

Camden County College has planned two information sessions regarding its certified nurse aide (CNA) certificate, a valuable credential for anyone interested in entering the nursing profession.

The first of these sessions is scheduled from 1 to 2 p.m. April 24 in Room 210A of the Camden Technology Center on the Camden City Campus at Broadway and Cooper Street in Camden. The second is scheduled from 6 to 7 p.m. May 1 in Room 105 of Washington Hall on the Blackwood Campus at College Drive and Peter Cheeseman Road in Gloucester Township.

CNA is the first rung on the nursing career ladder, and CCC’s program prepares students to sit for the CNA-certification exam with the state Department of Health and Senior Services. CNAs work under the supervision of registered nurses (RNs) to assist patients in settings such as long-term-care facilities, homes and hospitals.

College-level credits earned through completion of the CNA certificate may be applied to CCC’s multi-skilled technician or PN certificate programs, both of which are subsequent rungs on the nursing career ladder and include credits applicable to other programs. These other programs include the College’s associate degree studies in nursing. CCC also offers, through partnerships with four-year institutions of higher education, bachelor’s degree programs with a nursing major.

For questions, contact program coordinator Robynn Anwar at (856) 968-1296, or ranwar@camdencc.edu.
