Hannaford Career Center Adult Education Program announce that the following students completed the Licensed Nurse Assistant certificate program during the month of April and were licensed by the Vermont State Board of Nursing: Veronica Sargent, Chelsea Plouffe, Lisa Kenyon, Amber Dragon, Jeffery Andrews and Loren Thresher.
Students learned the basics of assisting patients, body mechanics, ethics and communication in the medical setting.
