Calgary Study Group Spring Session

Posted by on Feb 20, 2019 in Health System News | 2 comments

Greetings to our AGNA members, there continues to be a lot of interest in Gerontology study groups, both for those pursuing CNA Certification in May, as well as for those wishing to pursue professional development in this specialty area.  We are using the competency areas listed on the CNA website. We are looking for those who would like to study as well as those who could help to facilitate or act as mentors (great if you need continuing education hours to maintain your certification!) Tonight we are offering an information session, which takes just a few moments to log in or dial in to listen by phone. AGNA Spring 2019 Study group poster If you aren't able to join us, please contact us at agna.calgary@gmail.com or through this website as there will still be time to ask questions before we start meetings in the first week of March. Hope to hear from you soon! Sincerely, the Calgary AGNA Chapter...
