NURC 1101 Nurse Aide Train Program (A, SP, SU)      

3 credits
The Nurse Aide Training Program is designed to instruct the student in the knowledge and skills needed to provide basic care for clients in the long-term care setting. The student who completes this course is eligible to state test. However, the online blended NURC 1101 does NOT meet the requirements for the state approved nurse aide class in Ohio. The student who completes the blended version of this class will NOT receive a “certificate of class completion” and will not be eligible to take the state test for nurse aides. Both the traditional and blended versions satisfy the NURC 1101 prerequisite for specific health technologies at the college. Because this is a skills-based course, classroom, clinical and laboratory attendance is mandatory. The completion of the health record and the background check is required for the student to enroll in this course. Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) credit for NURC 1101 Nurse Aide Training may be available to a student with a valid State of Ohio Nurse Aide Registry Card.
