blockquoteBeing in the Certified Nurse Aide Program has helped me to break out of my shell and get to know people. I love the feeling of helping those who are in need. The skills I have learned while training will help me help those who need it. My goal is to be a RN and work with newborn babies.” -Frances Akui-Asperilla
