Turn your interest in helping people into a meaningful career. As a nursing assistant, you will directly provide care to patients in hospital, long-term care, or adult day care settings. The program includes a combination of classroom and laboratory activities and hands-on clinical experience in a long-term care facility. You will receive training in communication skills, both oral and written, personal care, basic nursing skills, assisting people in maintaining independence, promoting rehabilitation, and caring for those with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.
The program is approved by the Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services as a Nursing Assistant Training program. Students are required by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services to take the Nursing Assistant Registry Exam if they desire employment in a federally-funded health care facility (one that accepts Medicare and Medicaid patients).
Students will need to purchase scrubs for class and clinicals and pay for the certification exam.
