NURSE AID PROGRAM

Lean into learning

Individuals considering becoming a Nurse Aide can be assured of a career that provides personal and professional fulfillment with the possibilities of advancement. Nurse Aides are on the front line of providing basic care to the patients or residents in a variety of health care settings and facilities, ranging from assisting with personal daily needs such as bathing and exercising to monitoring vital signs and dietary restrictions. Job requirements tend to be non-invasive procedures and revolve around daily routines that patients or residents may not be able to complete on their own. 

 Working under direct supervision of licensed nurses, Nurse Aides provide personal, professional assistance, ensuring patients are treated with dignity and respect while receiving necessary medical care. The Nurse Aide Certificate Program includes one course. It is a combination of lectures, laboratory, and clinical practice. The course length totals 129 hours. After receiving their Nurse Aide training the student will need to pass a state-specific exam to be fully certified. Nurse aides can be found in nearly every type of health-care setting, such as hospitals, nursing homes, home health, and private duty. In this way, the nurse aid can find a setting that is matched to their individual career goals.
