Nursing assistants complete training

A new group of nursing assistants recently completed their training at Madison College-Watertown. As part of the Nursing Assistant program, the students learned nursing, personal care and communication skills, along with client rights and care of clients with dementia. Madison College’s Nursing Assistant program is a technical diploma recognized by the Department of Health Services as a nurse aide training program. It prepares students for employment as nursing assistants and also is a prerequisite for many health care education and training programs. The three-credit course is offered at the Watertown campus every spring, summer and fall semester. Pictured above, from left to right, the following students completed nursing assistant training at the Madison College-Watertown campus this fall: Front row — Eyana Ortega of Watertown, Alexis Lara of Watertown and Samantha Jo Suski of Watertown. Back row — Sarah Rousseau of Watertown, Payton Roth of Watertown and Emma Messerschmidt of Watertown. Not pictured is instructor Catherine Krahn-Horton.
