Students from Stanly Community College (SCC) recently completed the Nurse Aide (NA) training in Level-I and Level-II. NA Level-I program, or beginning of the multi-skilled NA certificate program, is a 165-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.
The NA Level-II program is the next level of direct patient care and consists of theory, lab, competency testing, and 80 hours of clinical experience in a hospital-type setting. This course is designed to provide the advanced-level nurse aide student with the fundamental nursing skills permitted by the North Carolina Board of Nursing to provide patient care services under the direction and supervision of a registered nurse.
