100% of UAS CNA students pass State certification test

UAS Sitka is happy to announce that 100% of the fall class of UAS Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) students passed their final test, and then passed the Alaska State Certification Exam. It is not uncommon for states to report CNA failure rates of between 20% and 40%. At UAS Sitka Campus, we take great satisfaction in helping our students beat those odds. Confidence is key. By building their confidence, our faculty and Student Success Center work to help them be successful in their education and their life. The next cohort of CNA students began their 15-week course last week.
