Tarboro High students become Certified Nursing Assistants

Eight Tarboro High School students participated in this program that gives students a head start on future careers in nursing.  The Nursing Assistant Program provides the opportunity for students to earn their Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) certification after taking a course on the campus of the high school.

The class, led by Toria Moore, Edgecombe Community College Nursing Instructor, recently achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the North Carolina Nurse Aide State Test.

“I was ecstatic when I received the news that this second cohort of students achieved a 100 percent pass rate,” said Moore.

“This is a great accomplishment to be able to achieve this for the second straight year because the pass rates across the state are much lower. My students worked hard and are determined to succeed. I am very proud of all of them,” added Moore.

Tarboro High School students who participated are Miller Harris, Samantha Hyde, Elizabeth Moreno, Ana Ramirez, Brianna Ricks, Lindsay Rowe, Mariana Uran-Munoz and Megan Way.

The students will take the Certified Nursing Assistant II course during the second semester.
