Students at the Albemarle Public Housing (APH) Family Life Center successfully completed the Stanly Community College (SCC) Nurse Aide Level I (NA-I) training. This course includes classroom, laboratory, and clinical learning experiences and is an intense preparation for the North Carolina Nurse Aide I Registry exam. It also serves as the prerequisite to other healthcare training courses such as Home Care Aide, Phle- botomy, Medication Aide, and the Multi-Skilled Nurse Aide Certificate Program.
This special off-campus offering of the NA-I class is in response to community request for classes. The Public Housing Department and college partnership, as well as the success of these talented students, has paved the way for future health occupations and General Education Diploma (GED) classes at the Family Life Center.
