In the beginning, I was hesitant to join. I thought that because I hadn’t been in a class setting in 20 years I wouldn’t fit in. But not only did I fit in, I thrived! Angela, the instructor, made sure that all of her students were engaged in reading, hands-on training and fun learning games with prizes! In the matter of only three short weeks, I was able to become a Certified Nurse Assitant and CPR Certified. We enjoyed lots of laughs and built some beautiful friendships. I am proud to be a graduate of MHA. Angela is the greatest of all time with many years of experience, knowledge, and devotion in “Training Tomorrows Heroes”.

I enrolled in MHA and was very hesitant and doubtful in myself that I wasn’t going to be able to do it. The first day our instructor Angela was so welcoming to us new students. Angela provided us with a lot of great knowledge about becoming a CNA. As the class went on I still didn’t believe in myself but then when we started testing Angela reassured I would do great, and I did I was passing everything with flying colors. I don’t think I would have been able to pass any place else because Angela is so caring, educated and over all just amazing. A big thanks to Angela and this program. I’m so glad I enrolled here with MHA.
