Nurse Assistant Program meets today's needs
The Red Cross Nurse Assistant Training Program, incorporated into the Central Maryland curriculum in 1982, has helped thousands of Central Marylanders launch new careers. The new training will require 72 hours of classroom work rather than 60, CPR training, and another 42 hours of clinical training.
"Even with the additional hours, the Nurse Assistant training is very fast paced," says Red Cross instructor Martha Gross. "Our students are out in the workforce after just four or five weeks." Those who successfully complete the course are eligible for a state certifying exam and go on to find jobs in hospitals, long-term care facilities, developmental disabilities homes and in home health care.
New state regulations effective January 1, 2000, require anyone entering the nurse assistant profession to take a core course such as the Red Cross Training Program. Our course covers all aspects of care, including protecting people's rights, communication, infection control, mothers and newborns, and caring for people with AIDS and Alzheimer's disease.
