At AdamsPlace, we have been honored to host seven area high school students for their clinical rotation during the course of their Certified Nursing Aide education. The students have now completed their training as CNAs, a crucial part of the team of healthcare professionals here at AdamsPlace.

On Thursday, May 3, at the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce, the students took the CNA oath alongside 10 graduates from the Stewarts Creek CNA program. The 17 local students then formally received their pins and certification.

The pinning ceremony for the Nursing Education Program was led by Chris West, Vice President of National HealthCare Corporation, of which AdamsPlace is an affiliate. The educational program was led by Jennifer Bettag, a registered nurse and BSN instructor.

After the students graduate high school on Saturday, May 19, at MTSU’s Murphy Center, they will begin working as CNAs as a part of our healthcare team at AdamsPlace. CNAs at AdamsPlace serve our residents daily, providing personal care to patients receiving rehabilitation, nursing care, and dementia care.

The soon-to-be-graduates from Siegel High School are: Audrey Butler, Natty Chantarasuna, Madison Hall, Sydney Horner, Derryan Johnson, Joshua Johnson, and Windy Yang.

Congratulations, grads! Welcome to AdamsPlace! Read more coverage of the CNA training and certification here.
