Course Overview

If you've ever thought about becoming a nursing assistant, this in-depth curriculum could help you learn important fundamental, practical skills involved in a career as a nursing assistant. Unlike other online nursing classes, our program lets you study at home at a time and place that is most comfortable to you.

Nursing assistants, also known as nurses aides, orderlies or patient care technicians work under the supervision of a nurse to provide assistance to patients with daily living tasks.

Working closely with patients, nursing assistants are responsible for basic care services such as bathing, grooming and feeding patients, assisting nurses with medical equipment, and checking patient vital signs. Nursing assistants give patients important social and emotional support and also provide vital information on patient conditions to nurses.

With all this plus medical animations, word games, and flash cards on the companion website, you'll be amazed at how easily medical terminology becomes part of your vocabulary.
