The University of Wisconsin-Fond du Lac and Clarity Care are offering a three-credit course this fall to prepare students to take the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) exam and earn a CNA designation.
The classroom component is five weeks long and meets Sept. 9-Oct. 10, Monday through Thursday nights, 4:30-8:30 p.m. The clinical component meets Oct. 14-29, Monday through Thursday nights, 4:15-9:15 p.m.
Both the course and clinical component will be provided by Clarity Care instructors. The deadline for individuals to sign up for the course and be eligible for financial aid is Aug. 23.
This course includes classroom, lab practice and clinical experience. Many nursing and other medical programs require students to have completed a nursing assistant course with a clinical component and have a current CNA certificate at time of application.
In this course (HES 150) students will learn the principles and skills necessary to provide quality resident care. These skills and concepts may be applied in various healthcare settings including nursing homes, home health agencies, assisted living facilities and hospitals. Students will learn what is necessary to be a competent and compassionate caregiver.
All students must meet with Continuing Education Director Rhonda Stucky no later than Aug. 30 to review course materials and attendance policy. To schedule an appointment call (920) 929-1153 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
