Despite numerous changes to the Certified Nursing Assistant exam making the test more difficult, several PHS students have passed and are now CNAs. The students had to pass the skills with 100 percent accuracy, and there were at least 10-20 steps in each skill and students could not miss one step. In addition, there was a time limit this year. New CNAs include: Margie Carcamo, Meagan Sanders, Mandi Morrow, Ashley Petty, Alondra Cid, Jordan Gammons, Alicia Guevera, Jakayla Lofton, Hailee Lanier, Kyra Skinner, and Mariza Torres. Congratulations!
