Certified Nursing Assistant Program
Our state approved Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) program is taught by a licensed nurse who trains students to assist patients in performing basic care at varying levels depending on each patient’s needs. The CNA also reports changes in the patient’s mental or physical status to a licensed nurse. Students receive both theory and classroom lab practice before attending to patients at a clinical facility. The program prepares students for StateTesting. Successful passage of this State exam provides students with certification as a CNA.
A Phlebotomist is an integral member of the medical laboratory team whose primary function is the collection of blood samples from patients by venipuncture or micro techniques, facilitating transportation of laboratory specimens, often acts as the patient’s only contact with the medical laboratory.
Electrocardiogram (EKG) Technician
Electrocardiogram (EKG) Technicians are responsible for performing electrocardiogram tests in hospitals, physician offices and various organizations. These tests are used to monitor and record electrical impulses transmitted by the heart. This course provides the student with instructions for collecting information and data about a patient's heart using electrocardiography. Topics include: medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, CPR for the health care professional (taken at the student’s expense), identifying heart rhythms, and operation of a 12-lead electrocardiograph machine, treadmill stress tests and use of a Holter monitor, legal and professional aspects of patient contact.
