This course prepares individuals to become Certified Nursing Assistants and potentially begin the career path toward a Registered Nurse position. This course is designed to provide you with the complete health care knowledge base necessary to sit for the Certified Nursing Assistant certification exam. Individuals do not receive certification simply by taking this course: they must sit for their state's certification exam. Each individual must also complete the clinical hour requirements for his/her particular state, as well as obtain a criminal background check, CPR certification, TB testing, and other screenings as required by his/her state. You will gain an understanding of basic medical knowledge and will learn procedures and techniques for providing sensitive and appropriate medical/personal care to a wide range of patients.
This is a 116 time-on-task hour course. Time on task refers to the estimated amount of time to complete all readings and assessment in a given course. Once the course has been accessed, students have 6 months to complete the course before access expires.
