Through lecture and hands-on skills practice, you learn to bathe, dress, feed, and assist patients with toileting as well as report changes in a patient’s physical or mental status to the supervising nurse. This program prepares students for the Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) examination which is taken upon completion of the course. After passing the state CNA exam, students become certified as a Nurse Assistant by the State of California, and can work in rehabilitation and long-term care facilities such as convalescent hospitals, and through an agency or in a private home. Requires completion of two classes: Nursing Assistant Training (HLTH 605) and Home Health Aide (HLTH 606).
