Hutchings Career Center Students Receive Nursing Pins | Business
Hutchings Career Center held its first Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) pinning ceremony on Tuesday, December 18. Ten students received CNA pins during the ceremony. The students received dual enrollment instruction and credit through a partnership between the District and Central Georgia Technical College.
The pinning ceremony was the culmination of the students' initial journey into the healthcare profession. The ceremony signified the students' completion of the CNA program and served as a rite of passage for junior nursing students transitioning into their final years of high school.
Each student that has successfully completed the CNA coursework and clinical hours received a pin. They are also eligible to take the Georgia CNA exam this spring.
During the ceremony, students were pinned by a parent, grandparent, or friend. Regardless of their career path, the pins will represent where the students first embarked on their professional journey.
