Our Nursing Assistant program is state-certified and provides students with the skills needed to work in a variety of medical settings. Topics include physical and emotional care of patients, vital signs, communication skills, handling of stress, safety issues, and the aging process. The course consists of classroom instruction, followed by practice in a nursing lab. In order to apply these skills in a clinical setting, approximately 24 hours will be spent in a nursing home under the supervision of the instructor.
Upon completion of the Nursing Assistant program, our students will be more than ready to take the workforce by storm. Our course teaches and reinforces communication skills actively, while training to check vital signs, properly navigate ambulation with a gait belt, and successfully transfer patients to and from a wheelchair. In addition to these, our students also train in body positions and range of motion exercises. This course also includes Alzheimer's certification.
In order to begin this program, students will need the following; a recent tuberculosis vaccine (within one year), proof of medical insurance, and state ID. A high school diploma is NOT required for this course.
