Posted: Nov. 8, 2019 9:30 am

QUINCY -- John Wood Community College will offer a two-week non-credit recertification course for certified nursing assistants at its Quincy Campus starting Monday, Nov. 25.

The CNA recertification program is for students that have previously been deemed competent as a CNA but have a period of 24 consecutive months that the individual has not provided nursing or nursing-related services for pay and has lost approved certification.

The course will include four classroom days and one clinical in which a manual skills test will be completed.

To meet the Illinois Department of Public Health requirements, students must pass both a manual skills test and the written competency test.

Students needing recertification must complete the JWCC non-credit class registration form. The approximate total of tuition and fees for the program is $300, which does not include preparation costs including update of any health requirements or criminal background checks.

For information, contact the JWCC Health Sciences Department at 217-641-4551, or email sstraza@jwcc.edu.
