75 Nurse Aides Primed for Medical Careers

Seventy-five Nash Community College Level I and II Nurse Aides were honored for program completion this month during a graduation ceremony. Nurse Aide I students learned nursing skills to prepare them for patient care including topics ranging from healthcare law to infection control and terminal illness. Nurse Aide I graduates are prepared to take the North Carolina Nurse Aide Exam, and following successful completion, may serve in a variety of healthcare settings as a vital member of a medical team. Many Nurse Aide I graduates continue their education by enrolling in nursing school.

Nurse Aide II students are often seasoned in providing direct patient care and wish to expand their knowledge. With the Nurse Aide II certification, many completers are able to achieve promotion in their field. Additionally, Nurse Aide II graduates are eligible to apply for the North Carolina State Board of Nursing Nurse Aide II credential.
