The exciting Saturday clinical will be held later this month for each block. The students will be able to experience the work of a certified nursing assistant by completing a half of shift. Second block will complete this on May 16th, while first block completes this on May 23rd. This is normally an extra credit day for the students, but due to regulations set by Illinois Department of Public Health the students have to complete a number of hours. Since there were snow days/bad weather days not being made up, this year the students have to complete this Saturday clinical to be able to complete the class.
One student out of twelve has begun working at Seminary Manor as a nursing assistant on the Alzheimer's unit.
Upon completion of the class in June, the students will be eligible to take the state certified nursing assistant test in July with a review class held for them two days before the test.
