Nursing Fundamentals

Nursing Fundamentals will provide students with knowledge and skills necessary to take the North Carolina Nurse Aide Exam.  After completion of HS II, each student will take an end of course exam   If students maintain a 75 average, they will be eligible to take the North Carolina Nurse Aide Exam.  This exam will cost $124.00.  All students wanting to take the North Carolina NA exam must have a valid government or state-issued picture ID, such as a drivers license.  They must also have a Social Security Card. 

     This class will be helpful to all student  interested in any type of healthcare.  Most 2 year (Associate Degree) Nursing Programs require that students complete Nurse Aide Training before they enter Nursing School.  Therefore, becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant is very important to students who want to pursue a career in nursing.

     This class is not like other classes offered in high school.  Students will be required to complete skills during our clinical rotation at Aston Park Health Care Center and Emerald Ridge Health Care Center.  Skills will include such things as feeding patients, bathing or showering patients, changing adult diapers, dressing patients, helping patients to the bathroom, brushing a patient’s hair and teeth, and many other activities of daily living.  Because patients are counting on them, it is important that students interested in 

HS-II be dependable, honest, caring, and hardworking.
