Message from Your Instructor

“My name is Carol Poppy. I have taught hundreds of Nursing Assistant students in a variety of healthcare facilities over my last 41 years of healthcare experience, but not all facilities are the same. I can proudly say that there is no comparison to the excellence in care that our St. Croix County Health and Rehab Center team provides. Our healthcare providers give the best care, and truly take care of our residents just like they would their own family members! This class is a great experience for those looking to get into the healthcare field. Let our team share our experience with you and help along your journey in healthcare.  

Although there have been many students who have taken and completed our Nursing Assistant program, there is currently a great need for CNA’s in our facility, County and throughout the state. You can learn from us, and better yet, you can work with us! “

- Carol Poppy – St. Croix County Nurse Educator
