Throughout the Nurse Aide course, students acquire important skills. In addition, they learn about professional patient interaction, recording vital signs and observing the patient’s condition.  They also learn how to assist with personal care, bathing, dressing and feeding. Importantly,  they become familiar with how to document observations as a healthcare professional.  Finally, students are taught how to report their observations to the nurse supervisor.
Upon successful completion of the Nursing Aide course, a student is prepared to take the Virginia Board of Nursing exam to become a CNA. The next step is to prepare for employment. We assist students in creating a professional resume and in completing job applications. Instructors take time to learn about each student’s  career interests. They help them apply for jobs in hospitals, medical offices, clinics, assisted living communities, nursing homes, home health and Hospice.
