Students have the opportunity to complete the requirements of the Maine State Board of Nursing, and become a Certified Nursing Assistant. The clinical component of the program is held at Waldo County General Hospital, Tall Pines and Harbor Hill. CNA certification is an option in both the AM and PM sessions of the program.

These options include physical therapy, occupational therapy, laboratory technology, medical office assisting and veterinary assisting.
