Nurse Aide Training

Begin your career in health care by registering for the Nurse Aide Training program. Classroom lecture, lab skills and clinical practicum will prepare you for employment in long-term care facilities, hospitals and nursing homes. Training topics include the role and function of a nurse aide, resident rights, nutrition, abuse and neglect prevention, infection control, psychosocial needs, safety and accident prevention, personal care skills, communication skills, and legal and ethical aspects of long-term care.

Participants will be prepared to sit for the Pennsylvania State Nurse Aide Competency and Training Examination upon completion of the training. Students must  register through Pearson Vue for the state competency and skills exam.
