PMC offering CNA classes

Parmer Medical Center is excited to announce a new community service they will begin offering. PMC’s first Nursing Assistant Certification Program will start on April 23rd. One of the requirements that all health care providers face is for all nurse’s aides to be certified by the state. With no certification program offered in Friona, any area resident wanting to earn that certification would have to travel to complete the 100 hour course and receive their certification. By having the course offered locally, area residents have the opportunity to obtain that certification and be educationally eligible to apply for those local employment possibilities.

PMC will begin the first Nursing Assistant Certification Program on April 23rd. Prior to the course, on April 22nd, PMC will offer the required CPR course on April 22nd from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. All classroom course hours will be conducted at PMC while all clinical hours will be provided at Farwell Nursing and Rehab in Farwell, Texas. PMC has opted to truly make this a community service and will be offing the certification course and the CPR class free of charge. Students may elect to purchase the optional textbook “Mosby’s Textbook for Nursing Assistant” for $80.00.

Class size is limited and the deadline to apply for the course is April 10th. For additional information regarding the application process, uniform requirements and the class schedule, please call Parmer Medical Center at 806-250-2754 and ask to speak to Devin Carpenter, RN, DON or Carmen Putman, FNP-C, Nurse Executive.
