Nurse aides, also referred to as Nursing Assistants or CNAs, help make sure the patient is receiving the best care possible. Their duties usually include feeding, bathing, dressing, grooming, and changing linens. Individuals who enjoy socializing and helping others might enjoy this career, which requires organizational and problem-solving skills in a hands-on environment.
Alamance Community College offers a Nurse Aide program that equips students with the fundamental nursing skills for various healthcare environments and offers both beginner (Nurse Aide I) and advanced level (Nurse Aide II). Upon completion of the program, the student may be eligible for listing as a Nurse Aide I and other selected Nurse Aide registries as determined by the local program of study.
Students entering the program must meet specific emotional, behavioral, physical, and cognitive standards. Click below for ACC’s Technical Standards GuidelinesDownload Technical Standards
