State Registered Nurse Aid Classes Start in April
Two State Registered Nurse Aid (SRNA) classes begin in April at ACTC. The daytime class will be held Monday, Wednesday and Friday, April 1 to May 10, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The weekend class will be held Friday from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., April 2 to May 9.
The SRNA is a way for people to start on a health care career. The growth of SRNA jobs in Kentucky is projected to be faster than average, with a 23% increase from 2006 to 2016. In Kentucky, 90% of the SRNAs earn an average of $14.19 per hour with an average yearly wage of $29,500.
This eighty-hour SNRA course trains health care assistants in basic skills necessary to assist nurses in a variety of health care settings. The class fee, based on ACTC tuition rates, is $420, plus $11 for liability insurance and approximately $88 for the book. Those who complete the class earn three college credits and can then take the state licensing exam.
The class is held at the Technology Drive Campus just off the Industrial Parkway (KY 67) that connects I-64 and US 23.
