Here’s a note from the CNA teacher/coordinator from Benefis:

We are so looking forward to this upcoming HS class!  These past classes have been well prepared by reading and having their homework done prior to the 1st day of class.

Our expectations are the following:

  • Please have each student complete a registration form – see attached.
  • We ask that each student either wear business casual meaning neat, clean clothes – no jeans, t-shirts, flip-flops, etc. The students may wear scrubs if they so choose, as well as secure footwear (tennis shoes are fine). Each student will be given a scrub top on the clinical days in order to differentiate students from employee. No perfume or colognes.
