Students will be prepared to provide competent, skilled nursing care in a compassionate manner to residents of long-term care, hospice, and hospital facilities. Upon successful completion of this course, including 90 hours of training, with a grade of “C” or higher, students will be qualified to take the state competency exam. With successful passage of the exam, students will be eligible to become certified nursing assistants. 

According to the U.S. Dept. of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall employment of nursing assistants is projected to grow 11 percent in the next decade, faster than the average for all occupations. As the baby-boom population ages, nursing assistants will be needed to assist and care for an increased number of elderly patients and long-term care residents.
