Nurse aides graduate from RCC-Glenns

On August 9, six students attending Rappahannock Community College’s Glenns Campus nurse aide program completed the course requirements for graduation. Clinical facilities were graciously provided by Riverside Walter Reed Convalescent and Rehabilitation Center in Gloucester. 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.
