Nursing Assistant

A Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) is an integral part of the interdisciplinary healthcare system and the nursing team. A CNA works directly under the supervision and direction of a licensed nurse to care for clients in a variety of clinical settings. CNAs are essential to the health care team, providing physical care and emotional support to clients.

The Nursing Assistant course at LBCC prepares the student to assist patients and family members with activities of daily living. Students will receive instructions in basic bedside nursing skills, basic restorative skills, mental health and social service needs, personal care, and knowledge of client rights. Students will learn knowledge and skills necessary to serve patients in long-term care and acute care facilities.

Students must be able to meet physical requirements, engage in therapeutic communication, and deal with stressful interpersonal situations.
