Bay College West Campus offers CNA course

IRON MOUNTAIN — Bay College West Campus will offer a Certified Nursing Assistant training course in Iron Mountain starting Monday, May 3.

This program consists of 120 hours, including a mixture of classroom lecture, laboratory and clinical training from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from May 3 through May 27. The course is $1,175, plus the cost of scrubs and a textbook.

Requirements for program entry include satisfactorily completing a medical examination before entrance to clinics, passing a criminal background check and a negative COVID-19 test before clinicals.

“We are thrilled to be offering this training at the West campus with our certified instructor Sherie Courchaine, who brings over 30 years in health care teaching experience to this program,” said Gina Wollner, dean of Bay College West Campus. “We made the decision to run the 120-hour class due to the close proximity to the Wisconsin border, which will allow students to work in 35 states, including Michigan and Wisconsin, once they pass their exam.”

A CNA’s duties include moving patients from room to room, assisting with cleaning and other manual tasks, such as lifting patients, or facilitating the administration of an IV or injection. CNAs also work directly with patients in performing a variety of recreational or daily living activities and are a vital part of any hospital, clinic or skilled nursing facility. After successfully completing the training, students will qualify to take the state competency evaluation test for nursing assistants.
