Students in the Allied Health Science (AHS) program at the Laurel County Schools Center for Innovation (CFI) are preparing for their Medicaid Nurse Aide clinical rotations. “The students are developing their patient care skills in preparation to complete their practicum hours in the spring semester,” said Mrs. Tammy Jones, MSN, RN. Allied Health Science students receive both didactic instruction in the classroom and clinical skills instruction in a healthcare setting. The students are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to sit for the state registered nurse aide examination. Students that successfully complete all requirements of the program can earn state certification as a Nurse Aide (CNA).
Dr. James Davis, CFI Principal, remarked on the success of students who have completed the Allied Health Science program. “I am very proud that our students are well prepared for college and careers. Several of our graduates are in Nursing School, Paramedic School, and are preparing for medical School admissions. Additionally, many are working in a healthcare setting in our region."
