Center Offers Continuing Education Opportunities for Nursing Assistants

Individuals who have completed nursing programs in the past can gain new skills through continuing education classes.

For instance, Christian Health Care Center in Washington recently announced that it will offer continuing education classes for professional nurses, reports The Bellingham Herald.

Washington’s Department of Health has recognized the facility and approved its training program for nursing assistants.

 

In addition, the center has applied to the Washington State Nurses Association to become a certification provider. During this process, the facility is able to offer classes that qualify as contact hours through the organization’s Continuing Education Approval and Recognition Program.

Christian Health’s first class will address assessment and management of the frail older adult. It will be held on January 22 and provide 7.5 contact hours.

Nursing assistants – or aides as they are also known – work under the supervision of medical staff in hospitals and care facilities, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). In 2008, individuals in this field made a median hourly wage of $11.46. The BLS projects excellent job opportunities for this profession over the next eight years.
