Nurse Assistant


Nurse Assistant program

The Nurse Assistant is an important part of the health care team directly involved with patient care of the sick and elderly. The Nurse Assistant program prepares students to seek employment in a variety of healthcare settings including hospitals, long-term care facilities, home care, physical therapy, hospice and doctors’ offices. During the program, students will develop communication techniques necessary for employment in a healthcare setting. Also, students will demonstrate proficiency in giving personalized care, recording vital signs, and performing restorative services. Nurse Assistants perform rewarding work as they care for cognitively impaired residents, residents with mental health issues, and residents with unique social or physical needs. Upon successful completion of the program, students will be recommended to take the Utah Nursing Assistant Registry (UNAR) State Certification exam to become a certified nursing assistant in the State of Utah.
