The Kern Center at Terra State Community College and Vanguard-Sentinel are collaborating to offer an 80-hour State Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) program at the Vanguard Tech Center on Cedar Street.

If you’re looking for a career that is both rewarding and in demand, STNA may be for you. Nurse aides provide a variety of care-related tasks such as dressing, feeding and observing patients.

This is an in-demand job and STNAs usually work in long-term care facilities, home health agencies, assisted living facilities and hospitals.

After completing this course, students will be prepared to take the state written and competency exam. State exam fees are not included in the cost of this class. State exams are completed through D&S Diversified Technologies and are held at the Vanguard Tech Center. Clinical locations will be announced in class.

Before the first day of class, students must read and sign a code of conduct contract. A Kern Center representative will go over this contract with you when you register.

The cost of this program is $599. (no discounts available)

For more information or to register for the next class, call Marsha Thiessen at 419-559-2464.
