BHS/BCC to Offer Nursing Assistant Program
Dec 1, 2009

Berkshire Health Systems and Berkshire Community College will offer the following Certified Nursing Assistant Program this spring. All classes will be held at the Hillcrest Campus of Berkshire Medical Center. Clinical will be completed at various Berkshire Health Systems Long Term Care facilities.

This ninety hour state approved nursing assistant course is comprised of classroom and clinical hours. Three examinations are given during the course in which students must achieve an average 70% in order to pass. The course consists of two final grades: one for the nursing assistant content, which is a combination of the mid-term and final exam, and one for the home health aide content final exam. Quizzes will be administered throughout the course to assist in determining student progress but will not be factored into the final grade. Assessment of clinical skills is on a Pass/Fail basis. Detailed information will be shared on the first night of class.

Classes for the first course meet Monday through Friday evening, January 18 through February 12, from 4 to 9. Other course dates for the spring semester are March 8 through April 2, and May 3 through May 28. The fee is $400 plus a $70 book deposit. The book deposit is returned when the book is returned either at completion of or withdrawal from the course.

If you are interested in enrolling into this course, call 413-395-7545. Your call will be returned to arrange an interview. For more information, call BCC's Office of LifeLong Learning at 413-236-2122 or 2123.
