STNA Competition Winner

Press Release

Posted: September 11, 2012


Aaron Innes has a goal to become a registered nurse and to learn as much as he can along the way.

With the help of Lorain County Community College and the Lorain County Joint Vocational School, he’s making progress on his goal. The 18-year-old Wellington man recently won third place at the Ohio conference of the SkillsUSA competition for State-Tested Nurse Aides (STNA). SkillsUSA is a nonprofit education association serving high school and postsecondary public career and technical education. Innes placed first in the regional STNA competition earlier this year.

Innes earned his STNA licensure after completing coursework at the LCCC Learning Center at St. Joseph Community Center in Lorain in the summer of 2011. He graduated from the Lorain County JVS with a diploma in Allied Health and Nursing in June 2012.

“Having the opportunity to take the STNA program through LCCC was one of the first big steps in my education,” Innes said. “The knowledge I gained through LCCC and my JVS program gave me an advantage in the SkillsUSA competition.”

Innes is continuing his nursing education at LCCC. He plans to earn an Associate Degree Nursing and earn certification as an RN. He then plans to earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing through the University Partnership at LCCC.

“I’ve known my whole life that I want to be an RN. I’m thankful to be able to pursue my education close to home and at a low cost through LCCC,” Innes said.

With the STNA license from LCCC, Innes is already gaining experience in the nursing field. He works part-time as an STNA at the Welcome Nursing Home in Oberlin.

“It feels good to have a jump on my career,” he said.
