Program at Piedmont teaching students nursing

PIEDMONT, Ala. (WIAT) — The medical industry will continue to need workers, especially as the nation’s population grows older. Students in the Piedmont School System can learn to become certified nursing assistants.

The school system was awarded a nearly $100,000 grant to launch the “Health Science I-Work Academy.”

Students can enroll in the 9th grade, take medical classes throughout high school, and intern at local medical offices in their senior year.

The program begins in the fall.
