Congratulations October Nursing Assistant Trainee graduating class!

Congratulations October Nursing Assistant Trainee graduating class!

Congratulations to the latest group of graduates who completed the Nursing Assistant Training (NAT) Program at Cedar Haven Healthcare Center as part of our October graduating class.

Our talented staff education department, led by Darlene Weaver, offers a free, paid training course for those interested in launching their career as a Certified Nursing Assistant at Cedar Haven. A CNA helps residents with their healthcare needs under the supervision of an RN (Registered Nurse) or LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse). Getting certified at Cedar Haven through our 3.5 week training program is a great alternative to paying for a much longer course elsewhere.
