CNA Training for Single Moms in Florida

A nursing assistant program in Sarasota, Florida, is helping single mothers provide a different future for their families. The Alta Vista Elementary School there was the site of a program that allows women to learn what they need to know in order to become certified nurse assistants—for free. Learning CPR, how to take a person’s blood pressure, and how to properly wash patients will give the women opportunities they may have previously been denied. The Herald Tribune reports that of the 15 women originally in the program, 14 finished and once graduated, 8 found jobs within a month.
