Preparation for the State's nursing assistant exam

This course is designed to help students prepare for the Washington State exam for Nursing Assistants as well as prepare them for the workforce. The class is split into three parts that include: 1) theory 2) skills and 3) clinical experience. Clinical work is done offsite at a residential care facility where students use the skills learned in the lab and class.
