The 13-week program runs Nov. 2, 2021- Feb. 8, 2022 (class ID #22228) from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Dublin; the course also includes five clinical day sessions on Thursdays and Saturdays from 6:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. (12/2, 12/4, 12/9, 12/11, 12/16). Upon successful course completion, students are eligible to take the Virginia Nurse Aide State Board Exam to become a Certified Nurse Aide.

Nurse aides help patients or clients with health care needs under the supervision of a registered nurse or a licensed practical nurse. They provide hands-on care to patients, helping with bathing, dressing and the basic activities of life. Daily activities a nurse aide might encounter include taking patients’ temperature, blood pressure and other vital signs. They will help with patients’ or clients’ needs under the supervision of a registered nurse or a licensed practical nurse.

The nurse aide program is eligible for tuition assistance through the G3 program. This program provides Virginia residents who qualify for in-state tuition and whose family income falls below an identified threshold with tuition assistance. Additional financial assistance may also be available.

To register, email Ryan Adams at radams@nr.edu or call (540) 674-3600 ext. 4435.
