Certified Nursing Assistant
A certified nurse aide helps care for ill, injured, disabled and/or infirm individuals in nursing homes. Under the supervision of nursing and medical staff, nurse aides answer patient 'call bells,' deliver messages, serve meals, make beds, and help patients eat, dress and bathe. Aides may provide skin care to patients, take temperatures, pulse and respiration, and help patients walk and get in and out of bed. Nurse aides observe patients' mental, physical and emotional conditions and report changes to the nursing and medical staff. Upon successful completion of this course, students will receive a certificate of completion and will be eligible to challenge a Certified Nurses Aide exam that consists of two parts: 1) a Clinical Skills exam (practical portion); and 2) a Written (oral) exam.
