CATC students’ summer: it’s been all about career

Summer hasn’t been vacation time for twenty-one students in the CATC Bridging the Gap workforce development program. They’re taking advantage of several career training opportunities. Twelve are in STNA (state tested nurse assistant) training, preparing to take the state test and interview for positions as nurses’ aides at Cincinnati Children’s. On this day, with guidance from Vanessa Rozier of RN & Assoc., and Shereia Hill of Cincinnati Children’s, they practiced their skills on Myrtle the mannequin and each other, watched instructional videos, read their guidebooks and discussed how to provide caring, quality patient care in their hoped-for new roles.
