This program is designed to provide students with the knowledge base necessary to become a Clinical Nurse Aide and potentially begin the career path toward Registered Nurse. This course is designed to provide students with the complete healthcare knowledge base necessary to sit for the certification exam in their state. Students do not receive certification simply by taking this course: they must sit for their state’s certification exam. Students will gain an understanding of basic medical knowledge and will learn procedures and techniques for providing sensitive and appropriate medical/personal care to a wide range of patients. In order to obtain certification in specific states, it is necessary to complete the clinical hour requirements for that state, as well as obtain a criminal background check, CPR certification, TB testing, and other screenings as required by that state.
