A group of the girls clinical students at the beginning of the year.

 After a year of hard work and dedication, the clinical students have finally become certified nurse assistants! Or CNA for short. To become a part of the Greenbrier’s clinical program, you must be either a junior or a senior and completed two previous health care classes. Greenbrier high school’s clinical program gives students the chance for hands on experience in nursing. During the year long program, students assist at a retirement home and different parts of Doctors Hospital. Clinical teaches amazing things for people who would like to pursue a future in health. Clinical is exciting, but there are sometimes during the year when it becomes very heart breaking because of some of the things you might have to witness. Senior McKenzie Barnett says, “my worst experience during clinical was when one of my patients died in front of me. I’ve never experienced someone dying in front of me… it was terrifying.” Becoming a CNA requires hard work, dedication, and a passing grade on the CNA test. Senior, Krystal Francis, describes her testing experience as, “Nerve wracking! I don’t know why I was so nervous because I knew I would pass. I guess I was nervous because the thought of me not being able to continue clinical is scary.” After graduating, these students are certified to start careers as a nurse assistant, giving them a great head start on a future career.
