Nursing Assistant


The 5-credit Nursing Assistant certificate program gives you the training you need for basic entry into the healthcare field as a nursing assistant or home health aide. You’ll receive 24 hours of supervised clinical experience in a long-term care facility. You will be prepared to take the state registry exam for certification after you complete the course.

Note: If you have been arrested, charged or convicted of any criminal offense, you should investigate the impact that the arrest, charge or conviction may have on your chances of employment in the field you intend to study or on your chances to obtain federal, state and other higher education financial aid.

To complete the requirements of the course students will need to receive a criminal background clearance. Please refer to the Criminal Background section of the catalog for more information on the criminal background study.
