Edison State and BRC team up for STNA classes

GREENVILLE — Edison State Community College will host two State Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) training sessions, with one starting in November and another in December. This accelerated course provides students with a local classroom and clinical environment led by knowledgeable and experienced instructors. It allows students to begin working as an STNA in a few short weeks.

The first course will run from Nov. 1-23. Classes will be held Nov. 1-4, Nov. 8-11, and Nov. 14-17 from 4 to 9 p.m. Clinicals will take place Tuesday, Nov. 22, and Wednesday, Nov. 23. Both the classroom study and clinicals will take place at the Brethren Retirement Community, 750 Chestnut St., Greenville.

The second session will run from Dec. 1-21. From Dec. 1-16, classes will be held Monday through Friday from 4 to 9 p.m. Clinicals will be held Tuesday, Dec. 20, and Wednesday, Dec. 21. Classroom study and clinicals will take place at the Brethren Retirement Community.

The demand for STNAs is high locally and across the state. Students can find job opportunities with hospitals, assisted living facilities, rehabilitation centers, and home health care providers. Additionally, many nursing schools in Ohio require applicants to complete STNA training as a program prerequisite.

Students will have certain requirements to participate in the class and clinical. Learn more and register by visiting www.edisonohio.edu/STNA.
