This fall, Wayne Community College will offer a course to train new Nurse Aide IIs and a refresher course for current Nurse Aide IIs.
The Nurse Aide II course prepares the Nurse Aide I to perform more complex skills for patients or facility residents. Upon satisfactory completion of the course and skills/competency evaluation, individuals are eligible to apply for listing as a Nursing Aide II by the North Carolina Board of Nursing.
It will be offered in a hybrid format that includes online and classroom or lab instruction and clinical rotations. Some Saturday clinicals may be required. The in-person class will meet 5:30-9:30 p.m., Mondays and Wednesdays, Aug. 29-Dec. 12.
A Nurse Aide II Competency course will be held for individuals whose Nurse Aide II certification expired within the past 24 months. Others can consult with the program coordinator for admission.
It will provide individuals with a review of the knowledge, skills, and abilities that must be demonstrated on the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program examination required for listing on the North Carolina Nurse Aide II registry.
Class will meet 5:30-9:30 p.m. for three weeks. The dates have not been determined but potential students should indicate their interest now.
Financial assistance may be available to assist with the cost of these courses. To learn more, contact Maxine Cooper by phone at 919-739-6938 or email.
