They perform day-to-day tasks and play a vital role in hospitals and other facilities. Being a CNA can help prepare you for a career in nursing or healthcare management work by providing tactical skills and knowledge that readies you to enter the workforce or gives you an edge when entering a four-year college or university.

Focus on Success:
Katie Eades
Legacy High School 2021

Having lost my dad to ALS, I have seen first-hand what medicine can for people. This led me to set my focus on becoming a doctor and to take Medical Sciences I & II at Bollman. Through Bollman, I was able to participate in the Discovery Program at St. Anthony’s North Hospital and upon completion, I was invited to volunteer at the hospital and continue to do so a year a half later. I took my CNA exam after completing Medical Sciences II and was able to graduate high school with a CNA certification. I am now working almost 40 hours per week as a CNA at a skilled nursing and rehab facility. In addition to all the skills the program taught me, I learned to be comfortable in medical settings and to trust in my abilities. I will continue my education at Western Washington University this fall and plan to go on to medical school from there. This program provided me not only with a strong foundation on which to build my future, but a way to get into the field while I am still in school and mentors who continue to encourage me.
