Nurse Assistants Savor Certification



Congratulations to the Adult Education and Training Center - Decatur Public School District #61 and to Rocki Wilkerson and all of her team! The above title is from an article in the Decatur Herald Review spotlighting recent grads from their bridge program.

The article stated, “They took personal and professional development, 104 hours of theory, 42 hours of clinical, and completed professional portfolios. The idea is to move people through a process that ultimately ends in post-secondary education and employment. Thanks to a grant from the Illinois Community college Board and Illinois WorkNet Youth Grant, the class was free.”

Also featured is information for interested community members to register for the next bridge session.
Thanks for making a difference in your community!
