Two-Year Sequence of Health Careers

This one- or two-year program offers students an opportunity to enter their health care field of choice at the level of their own choosing.

Students have the option of taking a one-year program to earn certification as a Home Health Aide/Personal Care Aide (PCA) or a separate one-year program to earn certification as a Certified Nurse
Assistant (CNA) and PCA. Or, students can take both courses during their junior and senior years.

Through both plans students will earn CPR and American Health Association First Aid certifications.

 Below is the breakdown of how the sequences works:

CNA/PCA YEAR

Students learn total patient care through training in the classroom and off campus. They prepare to take
the Certified Nurse Assistant examination that qualifies CNAs to work in any nursing home in the State. Students complete 108 hours of clinical work in a nursing home.

HHA/PCA YEAR

Students will learn through clinical training and classroom preparation how to provide valuable skills in conjunction with professional nurses in a home health care setting. Services range from health-related tasks such as obtaining vital signs to doing laundry, personal care and housekeeping. Students will complete 108 hours in a clinical setting.
