Course Description

[su_tabs vertical=”no”] [su_tab title=”Nursing Assistant Description“] What is a Nursing Assistant?

The Nursing Assistant is a vital part of the healthcare team. As a Nursing Assistant you will work closely and under the supervision of a Registered Nurse who will assign and supervise your work. Some of your duties may include:

  • Performing basic nursing tasks related to a person’s care.  A nursing task is the nursing care or a nursing function, procedure, activity, or work that can be delegated to nursing assistants when it does not require an RN’s professional knowledge or judgment.
  • You will complete this basic care for patients and residents who cannot do so for themselves.
  • You will report your observations about a patient or resident’s physical or mental status immediately.
  • The healthcare team will create a care plan that you will follow closely in providing the correct care for a resident.
  • You will only complete the work that is in your job description and scope of practice.
