                LEESBURG (Sept. 2, 2008) - Lake-Sumter Community College’s popular Certified
                Nursing Assistant course will be offered on both its Leesburg and South Lake
                campuses starting September 16. The series runs Mondays through Fridays until
                November 13, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

                CNA curriculum includes procedures for caring for patients; basic anatomy and
                physiology; age-related changes in the body; first aid; HIV / AIDS; computer training;
                domestic violence and CPR. Students will be required to have a background check the
                first day of class and must have a PPD (Tuberculosis) test prior to the off-campus
                training. Once the 125-hour classroom sessions and onsite clinical training are
