Newly renamed, The Independence Center CNA School had its Open House February 19, 2016 to say farewell to Front Range Nurse Aide Training Program founders William and Nancy Whatley and to celebrate The IC’s acquisition.
Now We Can Train Our Own Certified Nurse Aides (CNAs)
The Home Health division of The Independence Center (The IC) has experienced a continual shortage of quality CNA caregivers to serve The IC clients with both physician-directed and client-directed care options.
“The Home Health industry has great difficulty finding CNAs to serve consumers. We hope by offering state-certified training ourselves we will retain some of the graduates as well as offer training to non-traditional groups such as people who are Deaf or speak other languages and want to work in their community.”
Patricia Yeager, CEO
