The Nurse Aide Training
course will provide the skills needed to work as a nurse aide. Upon completion of
this course, students are eligible to take the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program
Examination. Certification as a nurse aide allows students to gain entry-level employment
in a variety of healthcare work environments including hospitals, nursing homes and
other long-term care facilities, home health agencies, and rehabilitation facilities.
Students will complete 80 hours of a combination of classroom and laboratory instruction.
If successful in the classroom, students will then proceed to 48 hours of clinical
instruction at a state-approved long-term care facility. Students must successfully
complete both classroom and clinical portions to be eligible to take the exam.
The Nurse Aide Training course is one of the many Linked courses
available at Collin College. Taught by credit professors, Linked courses mix credit
and non-credit (CE) students in the same learning environment, ensuring the same rigorous
standards are met in your education. CE students earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
instead of college credits. CE students complete a quick admission process and follow
CE tuition refund guidelines.
