Donna is a certified CNA trainer and has acted as a Clinical Skills Observer for the State of Michigan CNA certification program.

According to Donna an important part of our program is "being able to give the students health care foundations in class and skills in the lab and then taking them on job shadows or other health projects where they get to use them."

Korrie McFarlane, Instructor
My name is Korrie McFarlane. I have been an RN since 2000 and earned my Bachelor in Science of Nursing degree from Grand Valley State University. I also have a Master's degree in Career and Technical Education from Western Michigan University. My nursing background has been in obstetrics and women’s health and I have worked in a variety of health care settings. In the past, I have taught clinicals at GVSU for the RN program. This is my 8th year at KCTC teaching in the health careers department and I currently teach the Nurse Tech class.
I have always had a passion for education. I look forward to each school year to be able to give my students the opportunity to learn more about themselves and explore what it means to have a career in the medical field. My goal as a teacher is to be able to provide hands on skills and real life experience that my students will be able to apply to their future careers in healthcare.
I was born and raised in Grand Rapids and am married with two children. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, playing tennis, going to the beach and spending time with family.
Linda Ford, Instructor
I teach in the Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) course of the Health Careers program. I have been a nurse for over 35 years and my specialties are Gerontological Nursing and Mental Health Nursing. My education is from the University of Michigan (Go Blue!), where I received both my Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) and Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) degrees. In addition to my work here at KCTC, I am a mom to twin adult daughters who keep me busy with their lives and interests.
I love teaching at KCTC because students get opportunities here that they cannot get at their local high school. Our CNA/NT/PCT students learn and practice clinical skills in our labs, then are able to go to hospital and long-term care settings where they are doing the work of CNA/NT/PCTs. The students learn what it means to be a health care professional. They develop the skills and abilities necessary to be successfully employed upon graduation
