Nursing & STNA Gain Real-World Experience

Students in the Compact's Advancement to Nursing and Nursing Assistant Programs (both at Barberton High School) have a wonderful opportunity to serve others and gain valuable work experience at Pleasant View Skilled Nursing & Rehab in Barberton. All with support and under the watchful eye of Teachers Cindy Boswell and Debbie Ritz as well as the Pleasant View staff.

Sometimes the experience even leads into a job at Pleasant View, which is the case with two program alumni Dyzre Jenkins (BHS class of 2019) and Haley Burrows (WHS class of 2019). It's partnerships like this that make our Nursing programs two of the best in the state. With jobs in the Healthcare field in high demand, these programs are helping students get on the fast track to where they want to be!
