Employees at Boonsboro retirement community complete certified nursing assistant program

July 06, 2008

Four employees have received certificates of completion in the CNA class started recently at Fahrney-Keedy Home and Village, Boonsboro.

They are Tiffany Waters of Waynesboro, Pa.; Misty Shifflett of Williamsport; Trina Hammond of Martinsburg, W.Va., and Samantha Shry of Boonsboro.

Stephanie Alexander, assistant administrator at Fahrney-Keedy, created the course curriculum, which includes 164 hours of instruction over 12 weeks.

She thanked the Fahrney-Keedy Auxiliary for helping with funding and in making the class a reality.

"We wouldn't be able to offer the class we have without the auxiliary's help."

Another class, on weekends, is being held this summer. Alexander said students' work schedules at Fahrney-Keedy determine the days a class is offered. Each day's session lasts for up to six hours.

Fahrney-Keedy Home & Village, a continuing care retirement community, is along Md. 66 a few miles west of Boonsboro. With 160 full- and part-time employees it serves a resident population of almost 200 women and men in independent living, assisted living and long- and short-term nursing care. Fahrney-Keedy is committed to enhancing the lives of seniors through caring quality service.
