Program description

State tested nursing assistants (STNAs) play a critical role within the health care industry. As members of the health care team, STNAs have the most direct contact with patients. STNAs work in a variety of settings, such as rehabilitation centers, hospitals, residential care facilities, clinics, day care centers, assisted living facilities or in a patient's home. STNAs improve their patients’ well-being by assisting them with personal care and monitoring progress with their recovery goals. They work as care partners, patient care assistants, caregivers, clinical assistants, home health aides, resident assistants and more.
