Our Nurse Assistant Program curriculum objective is to provide training and certification preparation for Certified Nurse Aide candidates. There is an urgent need for competent nurse aides to join the increasing demand of nurse assistants in the hospital settings and long term care facilities. Our goal is to prepare students to be competent nursing assistants that are knowledgeable and safe, have a caring attitude, and are able to provide excellent nursing care.
Our Nurse Assistant Training Program course provides the student with specific skills training and competency required to obtain employment as a nursing assistant, patient care partner, handicapped children’s aide, school health aide, etc. Following successful completion of the core curriculum, the student may test for Certification as a Nursing Assistant. The program, while exposing students to nursing and related medical careers, prepares the student for application to Licensed Vocational Nursing programs or to begin the college level requirements for Registered Nursing and other health care fields.
