Boundary Community Hospital and North Idaho College announced the graduation of the autumn semester Certified Nursing Assistant class.

Whether at the local hospital or at home with in-home services, the person more than likely helping take care of your personal needs is a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), someone who has completed a certification course that includes classroom, lab and clinical training and experience to ensure they are able to provide personal care in compliance with the state’s regulations.

Over the past eight weeks, our newest graduates have learned the ins and outs of what it means to be a CNA in Bonners Ferry.

Autumn semester graduates are Katrina Stenros, Sheniece Whitecrow, Dakota Nielsen, Caleb Beazer, Mary Kopf, Ambur Robbins, Nicole Nairn and Nyesha Fleming. Registered nurse Tracy Maas instructed the course.

With time spent training with nurses at Boundary Community Hospital, the students come away with an appreciation of the dedication and skills needed in the real world.

Boundary Community Hospital and North Idaho College are very proud and excited for these CNAs to take on their roles throughout the community.

Boundary Community Hospital, in conjunction with North Idaho College, offers CNA certification courses quarterly in Bonners Ferry.

The next semester will be January through March 2020. For information about the CNA program, contact Tracey Maas by email, tracey.m@bcch.org, or by phone, (208) 267-3141, extension 4312.
