Certified nursing assistants play a key role as members of the comprehensive healthcare team in a variety of medical settings - CNAs are employed in hospitals, long-term care facilities, nursing homes, community care facilities and as home health aides in patient's homes. Regardless of where you work, many of your responsibilities will be the same; however, some duties may differ depending on the type of facility or location of employment. A certified nursing assistant's main role is to provide basic care to patients, as well as assist them in daily activities they might have trouble with on their own, such as bathing. Because of the personal nature of the job, certified nursing assistants should be compassionate and enjoy helping others.

 

Course Description: Concepts and practices in basic skills for Nursing Assistants. Course includes basic medical terminology, basic human anatomy and physiology, and the aging process. Students will gain understanding and application of the skills required to address the needs of the chronically ill residents.
