Nursing Assistant Overview

If you’ve ever thought about becoming a nursing assistant, this in-depth curriculum could help you learn important fundamental, practical skills involved in a career as a nursing assistant. Unlike other online nursing classes, our program lets you study at home at a time and place that is most comfortable to you.

Nursing assistants, also known as nurse’s aides, orderlies or patient care technicians work under the supervision of a nurse to provide assistance to patients with daily living tasks.

Working closely with patients, nursing assistants are responsible for basic care services such as bathing, grooming and feeding patients, assisting nurses with medical equipment, and checking patient vital signs. Nursing assistants give patients important social and emotional support and also provide vital information on patient conditions to nurses.

Medical Terminology Overview

Common medical terminology is a critical part of the language used by health care practitioners. It is essentially a vocabulary that requires a uniform pronunciation, definition, and spelling of terms used by professionals. Individuals with medical terminology training are capable of analyzing and interpreting medical reports related to specific body systems.

This program is appropriate for adults looking to learn new job skills, refresh or refine existing healthcare knowledge, or improve occupational performance by possessing a better understanding of medical terms.
