Certified Nursing Assistant

The Certified Nursing Assistant Course lays the groundwork for a career in nursing. Students are taught how to help and care for patients in their daily living activities, with emphasis placed on patient safety and infection control, the aging process, communication, legal and ethical issues, patient rights, personal care, elimination, nutrition, emergencies and rehabilitation. The CNA course serves as a prerequisite to many of Southeast Tech's healthcare programs, and upon its completion, students may take the state exam for certification.
