We are committed to excellence in education as a gateway to career development

 

Our curriculum articulates the core competencies required for the certification as a nurse’s aide with a focus on dementia care.

After completion of the course students will be prepared and eligible for the Connecticut State Examination and Clinical Skills Examination. In addition, the students will have the opportunity   to apply to The National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners   for certification as a Dementia Care Provider. This preparation for Dementia Certification is not offered at any other Certified Nurse’s Aide Program in the Farmington Valley.

 

These combined certifications will prepare students for employment in various healthcare settings such as hospitals, long term care facilities, assisted living facilities, home care and private duty.
