Mountain Top Cares Coalition (MCC) Launches Public Access Naloxone (PAN) Program

Written By Editor on 1/19/22 | 1/19/22

Valley Health Services (VHS) in Herkimer has been finding success in its Nurse Aid Training Program that helps its resident assistants become certified nursing assistants (CNAs). The 120-hour course is taught by Peggy Cool, RN, through The Center for Corporate and Community Education at Mohawk Valley Community College. It teaches basic nursing skills, preparing students to care for residents and qualifying them to sit for the CNA Exam. Five resident assistants completed the program in October and three in December.
Lisa Betrus, VHS president and Bassett Healthcare Network senior vice president, chief Strategy and Transformation officer said, “We are extremely grateful for the commitment and dedication of these students to further their education for the benefit of our residents. All of us at Valley Health are extremely proud of these individuals’ accomplishments, especially in this time of a global pandemic and national shortage of direct healthcare workers.”
Valley Health Services will be offering more Nurse Assistant Training Programs in the near future. It is seeking those interested in beginning a career in healthcare. For more information, please contact the Human Resources department at 31-866-3330, extension 2254.
