Students from Stanly Community College recently completed the Nurse Aide training in Level-I and Level-II.
The NA Level-I program, or beginning of the multi-skilled NA certificate program, is a 165-hour program that includes lecture/lab, a clinical component and state exam preparation. Students learn patient care skills used in long-term care facilities, hospitals and home care agencies.
The NA Level-II program is the next level of direct patient care and consists of theory, lab, competency testing, and 80 hours of clinical experience in a hospital-type setting. This course is designed to provide the advanced-level nurse aide student with the fundamental nursing skills permitted by the North Carolina Board of Nursing to provide patient care services under the direction and supervision of a registered nurse.
The NA Level I Hybrid course consists of online theory, on-campus lab on Fridays, and Sunday clinical experience at a long-term care facility. In this course, students learn how to provide personal care and basic nursing skills such as checking vital signs, bed-making, bathing, dressing, feeding, ambulating and transferring.
