Northern Marianas College Nursing Program, in collaboration with the CNMI Area Health Education Center, is offering a Nursing Assistant Certificate Program which will run for 10 weeks this summer from May 31 through August 6, 2021.
This course will prepare entry-level nursing assistants to provide basic nursing care to the elderly, ill, and persons with disabilities in long-term care, hospitals, clinics, schools, and home health settings. It is designed for any student or individual interested in beginning a career as a nursing assistant, individuals interested in taking a nursing course but still at developmental English and math levels, and for persons already employed as a nursing assistant but have not completed formal course work.
Upon completion of this course, the participants will be able to take the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program (NNAAP) Competency Examination administered by the NMI Board of Nursing. Upon passing the NNAAP exam, participants will become licensed as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), be placed on the NMI Board of Nursing Registry for Nursing Assistants, and practice as a CNA in the CNMI, U.S. Territories or U.S. mainland.
