The Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) will continue to offer an eight-hour online course for temporary certification for CNAs or Certified Nursing Aides. A standard CNA class takes four weeks, but the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services allowed the on-line version in 2020 to help with staffing in response to the pandemic.
“We’ve seen these temporary CNAs convert to part-time and full-time county employees at Gracedale,” says Jennifer Stewart-King. “If anyone would like to join our team we urge them to consider this opportunity.”
For more information about certification programs, please contact Victoria Bunn at 610-829-6344 or apply online at https://www.northamptoncounty.
