The Nurse Aide I course prepares students to provide personal care and perform basic nursing skills
for the elderly and other adults.
Emphasis is placed upon the aging process. Topics covered include:
- restorative care
- personal and functional diseases/disorders
- patient’s rights
- nutrition management and elimination
- CPR (Basic Life Support through the American Heart Association).
During clinical, the student gains experience by performing previously learned skills on residents in a skilled nursing facility.
The student, who successfully completes all course requirements, receives a certificate of course completion and becomes eligible to sit
for the state competency examination and therefore become listed on the North Carolina Nurse Aide Registry with the Division of
Health Service Regulation.
