Nursing Assistant

  • Class Type: Nursing Assistant
  • Location: Lexington
  • Start Date: June 06, 2022
  • Time: 8 a.m. - 4:40 p.m.

Central Community College offers the 76-hour training required by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services for registry and for employment as a nursing assistant. Upon successful completion of the course, students are eligible to take the state competency examination, which consists of a written and skills test. The class will meet Mondays through Fridays, June 6-17.

Nursing assistants -- also known as nurse aides, orderlies, patient care technicians and home health aides -- assist patients with daily living tasks. They work in nursing homes, hospitals, mental health facilities, assisted living facilities and private homes.

Being a nursing assistant can also be a stepping stone to becoming an LPN, RN or other health professional. Job prospects for nursing assistants are expected to be excellent due to the increasing long-term care needs of an aging population.
