Certified Nurse Assistant Program

Our nurse assistant program, also known as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) program, is designed to prepare individuals for entry-level positions in the healthcare field. This program provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills to provide basic patient care under the supervision of licensed nurses. Here is a general description of our certified nurse assistant program:

Program Overview:
A nurse assistant program is typically a certificate program that can be completed in a few weeks to a few months, depending on the program and its structure. It focuses on developing the foundational skills required to work as a nurse assistant in various healthcare settings.

The curriculum of our nurse assistant program covers both classroom instruction and hands-on clinical training. The topics covered in the program may include:

1. Introduction to Nursing Assistant Role: Students learn about the role and responsibilities of a nurse assistant within the healthcare team. They understand the importance of effective communication, maintaining patient privacy and dignity, and working within legal and ethical boundaries.

2. Basic Nursing Skills: Students acquire the fundamental skills necessary to provide basic patient care. This includes learning how to take vital signs, assist with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, and feeding, and safely move and transfer patients.

3. Infection Control and Safety: Students learn infection control protocols, proper hand hygiene, and techniques to prevent the spread of infections. They also learn about maintaining a safe environment for patients and themselves, including identifying and responding to potential hazards.

4. Body Systems and Anatomy: Students gain a basic understanding of the structure and function of the human body, including major body systems and their interconnections. This knowledge helps them provide appropriate care and understand the impact of various health conditions on patient well-being.

5. Medical Terminology: Students learn common medical terminology used in healthcare settings to effectively communicate with healthcare professionals and understand medical documentation.

6. Patient Care Procedures: Students are trained in essential patient care procedures, such as taking and recording vital signs, assisting with mobility and ambulation, providing personal hygiene care, and assisting with feeding and nutrition.

7. Communication and Interpersonal Skills: Students develop effective communication and interpersonal skills to interact with patients, their families, and the healthcare team. They learn techniques for active listening, empathy, and effective verbal and non-verbal communication.

8. Clinical Experience: Our nurse assistant program includes a supervised clinical experience component. This allows students to apply their knowledge and skills in a real healthcare setting under the guidance of experienced instructors. They work directly with patients, gaining hands-on experience in providing care and practicing the skills they have learned.

Upon completion of the nurse assistant program, students may be eligible to take a state competency exam to become a certified nursing assistant (CNA). Certification requirements vary by state, but passing the exam demonstrates competency and allows individuals to work as CNAs in healthcare facilities.

Career Outlook:
Certified Nurse Assistant graduates can find employment opportunities in various healthcare settings, such as hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and home healthcare agencies. They work under the supervision of licensed nurses, providing direct patient care and contributing to the overall comfort and well-being of patients.

At Absolute Allied Health Academy, we strive for excellence, we help our students with job placements after completion of the program if needed.
