Nurse aides graduate from both RCC campuses

On August 2, three classes of students attending Rappahannock Community College’s Warsaw and Glenns Campus nurse aide programs completed the course requirements for graduation. Clinical facilities for the Warsaw groups were graciously provided by The Orchard, a nearby senior living community. Also, through arrangements with the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services, the nurse aide graduates will now be able to take their certification test locally rather than having to travel to Richmond.

Students wishing to take advantage of this funding should call the VEC’s Len Stewart at 804-333-3675.
