Students in the high school sections of the nursing aide program at Delta-Montrose Technical College recently had an opportunity to gain a greater appreciation for the physical changes and special care needs of the elderly during a geriatric simulation. Students wore special glasses to experience the vision alterations caused by glaucoma and retinitis. They also wore gloves and weighted vests, wrist, knee, and elbow restraints, and walked with a walker to give them an understanding of the physical constraints often caused by aging.

Delta-Montrose Technical College offers 57 secondary and postsecondary certificates in 12 different programs. All certificates can be earned in two semesters or less, with many of them only one semester in length.
