Hiring fair earns praise

Thank you for the article regarding the Milford High School hiring fair. Not only does this promote hiring to fill much needed positions, but it also assists our future generation in promoting responsibility and a good work ethic.

I must, however, point out an error. You mentioned Crestwood Nursing Home is looking for LPN’s and that they will train them in 6 weeks.

Practical Nurses must go through a minimum of 11 months and pass NCLEX boards prior to being able to practice. I do believe, however, that they were discussing licensed nursing assistants (LNA), much needed today with the nursing shortage affecting every layer of nursing.

LNA’s are the most hardworking yet underpaid of our healthcare workers today and without them, nurses would not be able to provide the intensive care that they do.
