Mountain View College Graduates 31 CNAs in Partnership With DeSoto ISD

Mountain View College recently hosted DeSoto High School's 2016 Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Completion Ceremony. This was MVC's first CNA program with DeSoto, and 31 students graduated with their CNA certificate. The students, who were juniors and seniors at DeSoto High School, completed 60 hours of classroom instruction at the high school with MVC instructors and 40 hours of clinical instruction at the Villa at Mountain View nursing home.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time teaching the CNA students of DeSoto High School,” said Carolyn Johnson, one of the MVC instructors. “They were very attentive, enthusiastic and eager to learn.”

The partnership is in the first of a three-year contract with the district. Dr. David Harris, superintendent for DeSoto ISD, told the students and instructors that the partnership far exceeded his expectations during the graduation ceremony.​
