Certification and Licensing Preparation

A certified nursing assistant class is offered through the Division of Nursing and Allied Health. The college offers NURS 130-Nursing Assistant, a six-unit class that prepares students to take the Nevada licensing exam for certification as a nursing assistant.

A Certified Nursing Assistant is an individual who, under the direction of a licensed nurse, typically provides basic nursing care for patients in long-term and acute care institutions. CNAs are educated to assist patients with activities of daily living such as bathing, feeding and dressing, and to help maintain a safe and protective care environment. As they have extensive daily contact with patients, CNAs also play a key role in communicating information/observations to the nurse.
