Nurse aides, also known as nursing assistants, geriatric aides, unlicensed assistive personnel, or hospital attendants, perform routine tasks under the supervision of nursing and medical staff. They perform some clinical tasks and work directly with patients to provide care such as dressing, feeding, bathing and observation.

As a Nurse Aide, you must demonstrate compassion and empathy. You must be in good general health and have the ability to communicate with other members of the healthcare team. You may work in a hospital, nursing home, assisted living center, hospice facility, private residence, or other long-term care center.

After successfully completing this program, you will receive a certificate of completion and must pass a state examination to be an STNA (state tested nurse aid). The state examination is usually available at the LCCC training sites on a monthly basis, as classes are scheduled. Many STNAs go on to earn their LPN (licensed practical nurse) or RN (registered nurse) certifications.

Typical courses are 3, 4 or 5 weeks long offered all fall, spring and summer semesters. Please contact Enrollment Services at (440) 366-4032 for the list of course dates and locations.
