Big Sandy Community and Technical College has announced a new partnership with Paintsville Independent School District to train high school students to become certified nurse aides in eastern Kentucky. Training is underway as 30 Paintsville High School students began the program during the fall semester. These students will attend classes every morning at the Mayo Campus of BSCTC and returned to their high school for regular classes throughout the day. With this certification, many of these students will graduate high school and go directly into the workforce with hospitals, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, adult-day care centers, hospice, and long-term care facilities.
