Nursing Assistant Certificate – 5 credits

Provides training required for basic entry into health care as a nursing assistant or home health aide, including 24 hours of supervised clinical experience in a long-term care facility. Students are prepared to take the state registry exam for certification upon completion of the course.

Note: If you have been arrested, charged or convicted of any criminal offense, you should investigate the impact that the arrest, charge or conviction may have on your chances of employment in the field you intend to study or on your chances to obtain federal, state and other higher education financial aid. To complete the requirements of the course students will need to receive a criminal background clearance. Please refer to the Criminal Background section of the catalog for more information on the criminal background study.
