Residents Enjoy New Faces at Juniper Village!


February 20, 2012 (Lamar, CO) – Juniper Village at Lamar, a skilled nursing facility, is very fortunate to be part of the Nurse Aide program at Lamar Community College. It not only allows the residents to have new faces assisting with their care, it also allows the students of the program to log hours for the 60 hours of experience required for the program.

The Nurse Aide program prepares students to take their state exam in about 6 weeks. The program runs 3-4 times per year and includes 67.5 hours in the classroom and lab as well as the 60 hours of experience in local health care facilities.

LCC Nurse Aide students have just completed their time at Juniper and were treated to a small reception to wish them well as they prepare for their state exam.

The residents and students enjoy the interaction tremendously as we continue to nurture the spirit of life at Juniper!
