What students say...
"The Nursing Assistant program at BOCES CTI is excellent and some people would even say breathtaking. People would consider this program breathtaking because of the amount of time, effort and dedication that not only the students put in but also the teachers. The teachers are dedicated to the students, the time spent in the lab performing duties that the students have learned an even the time spent out at clinical. The students put all their effort an time into the program and their clinical hours as well The Nursing Assistant program out at BOCES CTI is one of the many hard working and dedicated programs they have."
