“The first time I walked into class, I was like this is where I’m supposed to be."

Jessica Blackburn’s parents always encouraged her to find a skilled trade. “I always loved learning about the human body and how things work so part of me has always thought about being a nurse,” says Jessica

But training to be a nurse can be expensive. So she decided to come take her CNA classes at Emily Griffith. 

“The first time I walked into class, I was like this is where I’m supposed to be,” says Jessica. “The atmosphere is super friendly; I loved being in Mrs. Law’s class.” 

She was impressed by how much the class prepared her for her boards. “I was absolutely more confident in my skills than others taking the boards that day,” she says. 

She finished the program in October and began working as a home health aide. And more recently she got a job as a CNA in the telemetry unit at SCL Health Lutheran Medical Center, where she will be assisting with monitoring vital signs.  

She would definitely recommend the Emily Griffith CNA program to others. “It prepares you for the real world,” says Jessica. “It’s a welcoming place and they really want you to succeed.”
