Richmond Community College introduces 25 new certified nursing assistants into the workforce after they completed state certification testing with an overall passage rate of 96 percent for spring semester. A total of 26 Nursing Assistant I students took the exam, and 25 students passed.

The class included traditional students, Basic Skill plus students and high school students in the Career and College Promise dual enrollment program.
The Nursing Assistant I class is a requirement for getting into RCC’s nursing program, but it also prepares students to begin working in a healthcare environment.
