MCCC Offers Opportunity to Become a Certified Nursing Assistant Instructor


West Windsor, N.J. - With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to strain healthcare systems around the country, Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC) Allied Health Professions department is searching for Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) instructors to teach at the college.

MCCC’s effort coincides with the State of New Jersey’s upcoming virtual workshop for its Nurse Aide Training and Competency Evaluation Programs (NATCEP), scheduled to begin on Oct. 19.

In order to attend the New Jersey Department of Health’s workshop, applicants must be currently licensed as a registered nurse, have at least one year of full-time experience as a registered nurse at a long-term care facility and at least three years of full-time experience at a licensed health care facility.

Tasked with preparing CNAs to enter the workforce, CNA instructors are key players in establishing a thriving local workforce. According to a 2018 survey by Capital Health, Mercer County residents cite aging as one of their greatest concerns. MCCC’s support of CNAs directly expands the availability of quality healthcare by increasing the number of trained professionals in the Mercer County area.
