SCC Nurse Aides complete training

Students from Stanly Community College (SCC) recently completed the Nurse Aide (NA) Level 1 training program.

The NA-I program, or beginning of the multi-skilled NA certificate program, is a 160-hour program that includes intensive 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. Additionally, students from local high schools were able to enroll in the Nurse Aide program offered through the Career and College Promise program.

Upon successful completion of this program, students can apply to take the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program (NNAAP) state exam. Once the students have successfully completed this exam, they will be listed on the North Carolina Nurse Aide Registry.
