Nursing

Nurse Assistant -

Training for home or

institutional care has become increasingly

important throughout the nation. As home

health agencies continue to grow, the need

for trained professionals increases. The

Nurse Assistant program was developed to

meet the growing demand for trained Nurse

Assistants to work in health care settings

such as home health care programs, health

care facilities, developmental disabilities care

facilities, respite care services, etc.

The course consists of classroom/lab

instruction and hands-on clinical practice at

local nursing homes. The training, provided

by a Registered Nurse, is conducted in

small groups, allowing time for intensive

and individualized instruction. The course is

usually completed by attending full time for

two weeks.

Upon completing the training program,

students become eligible to take the state

certification test. After successful completion

of that test, students are Certified Nurse

Assistants (CNA).

Dakota Nursing Program -

Lake Region State College, Williston State
