“We are looking for people who are highly motivated and want to get ready for work,” said Kimley Hines, health professions coordinator with Sussex Tech’s Adult Education Division. “If you want to get into the rapidly expanding healthcare field, give your family a boost, and upgrade your career, this opportunity may be for you.”

The Enhanced Certified Nursing Assistant program prepares students for a variety of jobs in many different health care settings – hospitals, nursing homes, doctor’s offices, clinics and more. For information, call 302-853-1492 or email kimley.hines@sussexvt.k12.de.us.

The training program runs Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with 75 hours of classroom and lab training at Sussex Tech; 72 hours of enhanced training in phlebotomy, EKG and dementia care; and an additional 75 hours of clinical training at a local healthcare facility. The training will prepare students for the state certification exam to become a certified nursing assistant, or CNA. Advanced CNA classes begin January 7, and basic classes begin January 22.

Nursing assistant jobs are projected to grow 11 percent over the next decade, faster than the average growth for all jobs, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Delaware has about 4,800 nursing assistant jobs statewide, with the average annual salary at $29,740, federal statistics show.
