Nurse Aide Training Program
The nurse aide course is designed to provide training to students who wish to seek the career path in providing safe and effective basic care for people who need long term assistance in activities of daily living.
The course provides an opportunity for students to perform functions of a nurse aide through 100 hours of faculty-guided skills lab practice and simulations as well as off-campus long term care adult clinical experiences. On successful completion of the course and evaluation, the student will receive certification from the NATCEP and will be eligible to seek employment at the long-term care facilities as a certified nurse aide.
The objectives of this course are predesigned by the Nurses Aide Training and Competency Evaluation Program (NATCEP) course curriculum.
You may pick from close to 10 batches that are available throughout the year.
- Understanding of the implications of long-term care
- A foundation in personal care skills
- Training in basic nursing skills and restorative services
- Exposure in mental health and social service skills
