GREENVILLE - Partnering for Progress, in conjunction with the Greenville Career-Technical Education Center (CTEC), have graduated their first response to a county-wide workforce shortage, with 11 State-Tested Nursing Assistants (STNA), many of whom have already been placed with an employer, said Marc Saluk, director, Darke County Economic Development.

“As our initial foray into training for the healthcare industry, things went very smoothly and efficiently. We have the Greenville CTEC and Adult STNA Program Coordinator Emily Powers to thank for that,” Saluk stated. “Their efforts are sincerely appreciated. Hopefully, this is just one of many more to come in support of healthcare careers.”

The next class is already scheduled for Jan. 27, Saluk commented, and can accommodate up to 16 students for the 3-week course, said Emily Powers, Adult STNA program coordinator. The class is comprised of 60 hours of class-time, and 16 hours of clinical practice, Powers commented. There are three quizzes, and one final exam. But for many of the students, this class is just the first step of a bigger journey, they said.

Many would like to use this opportunity to go on to be Registered Nurses (RN), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN), physical therapy assistants, and one young lady even mentioned becoming a pediatrician. The age range of the ladies in the class was from high school to a mother of grown children. This class offered not only a chance for Darke County to fill a workforce need, but a chance for Darke County residents to move forward in their journey to better themselves.
