Nurse Assistants learn to provide quality care for residents in long-term care facilities, hospitals, home health care and hospice settings. The Red Cross program is designed with input from educators, caregivers and industry representatives from across the United States.
PROGRAM DETAILS The Red Cross NAT program offers day classes which provide a hands-on environment including lectures, DVDs, role-playing and laboratory practice to teach students procedural skills such as vital signs, bathing, dressing and positioning. The classroom is equipped with hospital beds and medical equipment for students to use to practice. The Red Cross curriculum meets or exceeds state standards.
