Congratulations to the most recent Nursing Assistant graduates who completed their program on February 19. Although a small group, they were full of Lake Tech spirit. Their instructor, Cheryl Finotti, always does a spectacular job with the students.
Ever wondered what a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) does or where they work? They provide care and assist residents with a long list of tasks associated with personal care, nutrition and hydration, the use of assistive devices, socialization, and leisure activities among other tasks. They work under the supervision of an LPN or an RN. Earning your CNA starts a pathway in the healthcare field for those interested in becoming nurses, medical assistants, patient care techs, phlebotomists, etc. Lake Tech offers programs day and evening on the Eustis campus and during the evening in Clermont.
This week in the Medical Assisting program, new students were practicing their vital signs and how to apply sterile gloves. Senior students are ready for their practicum in the field and then they will be finished and ready for work!
