Health Science II: Nursing

Welcome to our Nursing Program,

Getting certified as a nursing assistant is a great way to begin your move up the nursing career ladder.  This program offers a sequence of courses that provides coherent and rigorous content aligned with challenging academic standards and relevant technical knowledge and skills needed to prepare for further education and careers in the Health Science career cluster.  As a Student Nursing Assistant you will  perform a variety of independent, hands-on tasks while caring for residents.  Supervised clinical experiences at long-term care facilities help students gain first-hand knowledge about nursing assistant careers and other healthcare professions. This course will provide students with the classroom theory and lab skills to sit for the Indiana State Nurse Aide Certification exam. After taking the state exam, the second semester of the class meets for coordination weekly with students participating on work internships. Caring for patients/residents on a daily basis provides some of the greatest rewards any profession could offer
