The College recently recognized the Roosevelt Care Center of Edison for its support of the College’s Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Program. The program, approved by the New Jersey Department of Health, is conducted at Roosevelt Care Center’s Barbara E. Cheung facility. CNA students study patient care and hygiene, anatomy and physiology, and patient safety and nutrition. The 50-hour classroom component is interspersed with 40 hours of supervised clinical rotations in Roosevelt Care Center’s Parsonage Road facility. Roosevelt Care Center and the Middlesex County Improvement Authority supported the College’s program from its inception three years ago and have provided the facilities and logistical support since the initial class was conducted in June of 2015. Students received assistance from a TAACCCT grant (Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training) provided by the U.S. Department of Labor and coordinated through the New Jersey Health Professions Consortium. College President Joann La Perla- Morales hosted the event attended by executives of Roosevelt Care Center, members of the Middlesex County Improvement Authority, the County Board of Freeholders and the College’s Board of Trustees.
