Nurse Aide Online
This program is designed to prepare students to meet the demands necessary for Long Term Care patients or provide care for patients recovering from medical illnesses. Students will receive classroom lecture and laboratory practice, and will ultimately be assigned into a clinical environment to apply acquired skills and knowledge in real life situations.
The student will protect, support, and promote the rights of the residents; provide safety and preventive measures in the care of residents; demonstrate skills in observing and reporting; and function effectively as a member of the health care team.
CPR training will be provided. Graduate students of this program are eligible to sit for Nurse Aide Certification administered by the Texas Department of Aging & Disability Services (TDADS). Successful students are given the title of Certified Nurse Aides who gain employment in hospitals, nursing homes, home health agencies, correctional facilities and private duty.
