Nursing Assistant Course Offered This Spring

WNC is offering a Certified Nursing Assistant course in Fallon this spring. The six-unit course prepares students to take the Nevada licensing exam for certification as a nursing assistant.

CNAs provide nursing care for patients in long-term and acute care institutions.

The class is held from 5 to 8:45 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday.

Individuals who register for the nursing assistant class must have completed Healthcare Provider CPR (EMS 100). This course serves as a prerequisite for admission into the nursing program, as well as the CNA course.

WNC Fallon is offering a one-day CPR class from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 11 through its Community Education program. Certification is based on the standards of the American Heart Association and requires passing a written exam and practical demonstration of skills at the end of the course. Individuals will learn basic cardiac life support and cardiopulmonary resuscitation techniques.

For information, contact Nursing and Allied Health at 775-445-3294.
