This program prepares students to provide bedside nursing care for sick, injured, convalescing, elderly, and physically or mentally disabled persons. Students will learn to observe patients, perform basic assessments, and report and document changes in a patient’s condition. You will also learn how to measure vital signs, perform medical treatments, and administer prescribed medications.
The program is divided into three terms. Each term has lecture sessions and clinical rotations at nursing facilities, clinics, and acute care hospitals.
Upon completion, students will receive a Certificate of Completion and will be eligible to take the licensing examination, known as the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX).
Job Assistance is provided to all students for employment in long-term care facilities, assisted living facilities, and hospitals.
