The Nursing Assistant curriculum is designed to prepare students for careers in health care under the supervision of the licensed nurse.
The student will learn the basic entry-level nursing skills to work in health care. The Long-Term Care Nursing Assistant/Home-Health Aide curriculum taken as a separate component provides the student with the necessary information and skills to take the State Competency Evaluation which is required for the Nursing Assistant State Registry. Both components contain a supervised clinical experience. The student will experience clinical in a nursing home in the Long-Term Care component and in the hospital in the Hospital Nursing Assistant component. During the clinical rotation students must relate classroom skills and knowledge to clinical practice.
