Edison State offering STNA class in April

PIQUA — Edison State Community College will host State Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) training in April.

This accelerated course provides students with a local classroom and clinical environment led by knowledgeable and experienced instructors. It allows students to begin working as an STNA in a few short weeks.

Offered through Edison State at Troy, the course will run from April 18 to May 3. From April 18 to April 29, classes will be held Monday through Friday from 3 to 9 p.m. Clinicals will be held Monday, May 2, and Tuesday, May 3, from 3 to 11 p.m. at the Brethren Retirement Community, located at 750 Chestnut St. in Greenville.

The demand for STNAs is high locally and across the state. Students can find job opportunities with hospitals, assisted living facilities, rehabilitation centers, and home health care providers.
