NUR 1000 Nurse Aide Training

Provides an overview of the role of the nursing assistant and focuses on provision of basic nursing services, protection of patient rights, promotion of independence, communication, safety and emergency procedures, data collection, and mental health and social services.

Both traditional classroom and hybrid (blended) courses are offered, and both are accepted prerequisites to Foundations of Adult Nursing Care (NUR 1010) at Marion Technical College.  Completion of traditional classroom courses qualifies students to earn a certificate of completion from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and take the Ohio State-Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) examination.  NUR 1000 (hybrid) does not result in an ODH certificate and does not qualify students to take the Ohio  STNA exam.  Starting spring, 2014, day, evening/weekend and fast track sections will be available.
