DeKalb County School District officials held a pinning ceremony for 70 high school students who have completed its inaugural Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) program. The pinning ceremony was held on May 15 at the Robert R. Freeman Administrative Instructional Complex. 

 The students from high schools throughout the district completed the nursing course work, preparing them to enter the medical career field. Upon receiving their certification, the students became immediately employable in nursing career paths.

By Spring 2019, the DeKalb School District plans to offer students enrolled in the CNA pathway further opportunities for success. This includes paths to licensed practical nurse (LPN) and registered nurse (RN) degrees at both Georgia Piedmont Technical College and Georgia State University.
