Program Description

This program is designed for students wanting to complete a one semester Certificate in Nurse Aide and enter the workforce. Students explore patient care procedures, skills, regulations and ethical issues. Learn the entry-level skills required for a career as a CNA in a long-term care facility, acute care facility or a home health care agency. Not all patients a nurse aide cares for are elderly, but the special needs of the geriatric population are an emphasis of the Nurse Aide training program at FRCC. A Nurse Aide certificate from FRCC qualifies the student to take the State Certification Examination to become a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA).
