The Hill College Continuing Education Department recently graduated five nurse aides students from the program.

The CNA program is a 112-hour program (72 hours of lecture, 40 hours of clinical) that costs $666.

Certified nurse aides are needed in hospitals as well as in entities that provide long-term care,” said Hill College’s Dean of Continuing Education, Stephen Pape.

This course will also be offered again at the Johnson County Campus in Cleburne Oct. 7-Dec. 10, 2019; Feb. 3-April 13 and June 1-Aug. 3, 2020. Additionally, this course will be offered Hill County Campus in Hillsboro March 23-May 9, 2020.
