Nursing Assisting

Nursing Assisting provides students with clinical and administrative skills necessary to enter a hospital or nursing home as a Florida Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).  Students will have the ability to complete the American Heart Association Healthcare Provider Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Certification, National EKG Certification, and Certified Nursing Assistant examination.  When a student completes the CNA, CPR and EKG Certifications they may be considered to be a Patient Care Technician (PCT).
