NEWBERRY — All of the students in the Newberry County Career Center Nurse Aide program scored a 100 percent pass rate on the S.C. State Certification Exam administered on May 16 and 17. They are now qualified to seek employment as a CNA in a health care facility.
The students are 2018 graduates of the three area high schools.
