The American Red Cross Health Care Training program is one of the most highly respected programs of its kind in the country. We prepare our graduates for rewarding careers in the growing health care industry.
As a Certified Nurse Assistant and/or Home Health Aide, you will have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide quality health care to residents in nursing homes, assisted-living facilities, to hospital patients and clients in their homes.
Students will be taught the proper ways to move patients and the basics of personal care, feeding, and bathing. Other skills covered include taking vital signs (temperature, pulse, breathing, and blood pressure), and how to respond to patient emergencies like choking or falling.
