Two courses are offered in the spring semester that will give students the opportunity to complete a certificate credential and enter the workforce for immediate employment.  NAA 100 – Nursing Skills Assistant I - provides knowledge and skills for nurse aides to assume the role and responsibility required in a long term care setting. The focus is communication, infection control, safety, resident/patient rights, and basic nursing skills. Three sections of NAA 100 will be offered in the spring semester.  This course is also a pre-requisite for the college’s Integrated Nursing program.

The course will be taught by Terry Dossett on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5-9 p.m.  FRS 2061 prepares students for national testing required for EMTs and for entry into the college’s Emergency Medical Services - Paramedic program.  

Students interested in any health career field may also benefit from taking AHS 115 – Medical Terminology. Taught by Jennifer Finley on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., the course offers a study of anatomical, physiological and pathological  terminology with emphasis on work structures and definition of root words, suffixes, and prefixes from Greek and Latin.
