Nursing home to offer tuition-free program

Posted: Updated:

LAFAYETTE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Four Lafayette area nursing homes have decided to pay for a solution to their shared problem of a shortage of certified nurse aides.

The nursing homes will cover the cost of a South Louisiana Community College instructor to provide training.

Laurie Fontenot, SLCC dean of nursing, allied health and safety, says their investment means the training will be offered tuition-free to students.

As part of the training, students will spend about three weeks in a classroom and then move on to their clinical training, which will be held at the participating nursing homes: Maison de Lafayette, Camelot of Broussard, Magnolia Estates and Amelia Manor.
