Snead State Community College graduated its first class of the new Medication Assistant program.
The program is a 100-hour training course designed to prepare students to administer routine medications to patients in a variety of healthcare settings. The graduates are all Certified Nursing Assistants employed with Diversicare and Crossville Health and Rehab.
“This was a great group of students,” said Snead State Director of Workforce Development Teresa Walker. “Annette Holcomb, the instructor, did a wonderful job. Diversicare was a great partner and allowed us to do clinicals at their facility.”
The Workforce Development Department will begin a new class in the Medication Assistant program on Jan. 30.
