Fitch High School to expand career-related courses
27 Feb 2023
Nevaeha Salas, 17, a senior at Fitch High School, knew she wanted to be a nurse after learning about the profession from her mother, a nurse, and volunteering with her.
Salas was glad to learn that Fitch offers a two-year program in which students can take a test to become a certified nursing assistant by the time they graduate. The students are shadowing CNAs at a nursing home in Mystic, and Salas also is working there.
“It’s just given me a lot of opportunities for the healthcare field, and it’s made me a lot more comfortable when it comes to being, and working in, the nursing home,” Salas said.
