Students Earn New York State Nurse Aide Certification
On Wednesday, June 10, 2015, Newburgh Free Academy seniors celebrated the culmination of their internship held at Elant in Fishkill as part of the Newburgh Enlarged City School District’s Nurse Aide Training Program.
The program, a facet of the Health and Human Services Academy, is open to seniors and prepares students for employment in long-term care facilities, home health agencies, and hospitals where basic bedside care is needed. Curriculum is mandated by the New York State Department of Health and includes the required clinical hours in a nursing facility. The program is located at the NFA North Campus. The mission of the Health and Human Services Academy is to provide programs that prepare students to enter the work force and/or post-secondary education as they explore human service careers.
