Glen Oaks offers a six-credit hour Nurse Aide course, designed to teach the skills required to certify as a nurse aide and prepare one for the state certification exam. The training helps one understand his or her role in relation to that of patients and nursing home residents.
Nurse aides perform a wide range of tasks and provide direct patient care. They help move and transport patients, educate patients and family members about health issues and treatments, take and record vital signs, apply dressings and collect specimens for labs.
Taking a single course of Nurse Aid Training can result in your participation in the fastest growing industry of health care. Nurse aides assist registered nurses in nursing homes, hospitals and medical clinics. Some aides assist patients in their homes helping them with daily activities. Nurse aides work more with patients that need continuing care.
