NEWBURGH - On Wednesday, June 5, 2013, Newburgh Free Academy seniors celebrated the culmination of their internship held at Elant in Fishkill as part of the Newburgh Enlarged City School District’s Nurse Aide Training Program. The 2013 class is the largest since the program’s inception with fifty students earning their pins this year.

According to Newburgh Enlarged City School District’s Director of Career and Technical Education John Etri, the program, a facet of the Health and Human Services Academy, is open to seniors and prepares students for employment in long-term care facilities, home health agencies, and hospitals where basic bedside care is needed. Curriculum is mandated by the New York State Department of Health and includes the required clinical hours in a nursing facility.

The mission of the Health and Human Services Academy is to provide programs that prepare students to enter the work force and/or post-secondary education as they explore human service careers.
