Nursing Assistant

Program Overview

You don鈥檛 need a stethoscope to know nurses have huge hearts! Tri County Tech鈥檚 Nursing Assistant program allows you to put your best foot forward into a rewarding healthcare career. The one-year program has been developed, in cooperation with medical professionals, to educate students with clinical experiences. You will have hands-on training in our newly renovated facility to become a certified nursing assistant. Upon the completion of the program, you will be qualified to take the state certification exam necessary for entry-level employment as a CNA. The Program focuses on the study of medical terminology, infection control, medical law and ethics, vital signs, CPR, first aid, and employability skills. Upon completion, you may be eligible to complete our Nursing Bridge program as a 番茄社区 Senior.

鈥淎fter graduating from the Nursing Assistant program, I went on to the Practical Nursing program. From the clinical programs to simulation labs to discussions, you learn everything you need to know to grow as a future nurse and person. Programs like Tri County Tech will leave a lasting impact on you as a person, and as a future employee.鈥 – Gracie P., 2024
