This course prepares students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential for providing basic care in extended care facilities, hospitals, and home health agencies under the direction of licensed nurses. Students learn hands-on nursing skills in the classroom and laboratory setting as well as attending a clinical site (nursing home).
This program also includes work-based learning and students spend time observing in different health care settings as well as listening to guest speakers from the healthcare field. Upon earning a CNA license, students will also be able to explore possible job opportunities as a CNA. Transportation to Ivy Tech and work-based learning sites is required daily and must be provided by the student. Students are responsible for the cost of college textbooks, scrubs, CPR class, a background check, a physical, two Mantoux tests, and drug screening.
