Program Training Plan
Students are trained under the direction of a licensed nurse in a patient’s physical, emotional, and social care. Course will cover professional ethics, basic safety and emergencies, communication skills, body mechanics, nutrition, anatomy and physiology, vital signs, infection control, personal care of the patient and the patient’s environment.
Both classroom theory and clinical experience in a health care facility is provided. Often the clinical experience will not be scheduled at the same time as class. Health care Provider CPR certification through American Heart Association will be included in the curriculum of this course.
When students pass the course and the state exam, they will be Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA), and qualified to take jobs at assisted living centers, long term care centers, home health agencies, and hospitals. Most LPN and RN training institutions require CNA Certification as part of their prerequisites.

THE NURSE ASSISTANT PROFESSION:
Nursing aides, sometimes called nursing attendants or nursing assistants, provide basic care and help with living activities. They typically do a combination or all of the following tasks:
• Clean and bathe patients or residents
• Help patients use the toilet and dress
• Turn, reposition, and transfer patients between beds and wheelchairs
• Listen to and record patients’ health concerns and report that
information to nurses
• Measure patients’ vital signs, such as blood pressure and temperature
• Serve meals and help patients eat
Nurse Assistants, help provide basic care for patients in hospitals and residents of long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes. In nursing homes, aides and attendants are often the principal caregivers. They have more contact with residents than other members of the staff. Because some residents stay in a nursing home for months or years, aides and attendants may develop close, caring relationships with their patients.
