As a Nurse Assistant, you are an essential member of a healthcare team. A healthcare team cares for the personal needs and comfort of people with health problems and assists a doctor and nursing staff in carrying out healthcare treatments. Under the supervision of a licensed nurse, you may bathe, dress, feed, mobilize, and transport people; obtain temperature, pulse, and blood pressure measurements; and report observations and reactions. Your other duties may include preparation of equipment, care of the patient’s room, and record-keeping.
Our Nurse Assistant program also has an additional 15-hour module to obtain your Home Health Aide Certification.
At the conclusion of the Nurse Assistant program, you receive a Certificate of Completion from a Massachusetts Department of Health Approved Program. This certificate enables you to take the Massachusetts Nurse Assistant test to certify you as a Nurse Assistant. Upon graduation and successful completion of the Massachusetts Nurse Assistant Competency Exam conducted by the American Red Cross, you are qualified to work as a Nurse Assistant or Home Health Aide in a hospital, nursing home, home care, or other healthcare agencies.
Testing is on-site for our students.
