In partnership with Meridian Nursing & Rehabilitation, we have an exciting opportunity for 10 current high school seniors to take a free Certified Nurses Aide course within our adult education division and have an oppmtunity to receive job placement in a Meridian long-term care facility. Upon successful completion of the 90-hour course (50 hours classroom and 40 hours clinical), students will be eligible to take the New Jersey State Nurse Aide in Long Term Care Facility Exam (approximately $75). Students will be required to purchase a textbook (approximately $100), complete a physical and attend each session. According to the New Jersey Department of Health, CNA candidates do not need a high school diploma and do not need to be 18 years old to become licensed.
