Nursing Assistant Program
Nursing Assistants, also known as nurses' aides, orderlies, client care technicians, and home health aides, work under the supervision of a nurse and provide assistance to clients with daily living tasks.
Upon successful completion of the Nursing Assistant Program, graduates may apply to take the National Council Licensure examination for Nursing Assistants.
Working closely with patients, Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) are responsible for basic care services such as bathing, grooming and feeding patients, assisting nurses with medical equipment, and checking patient vital signs. CNAs give patients important social and emotional support and also provide vital information on patients' conditions to nurses.
