After completion of the 120-hour course, students will be required to demonstrate the following skills under the supervision of a licensed nurse: communication; basic nursing and personal care skills; attention to clients rights; and care of clients with dementias. The program is recognized by the Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services as both a nurse-aide training program and competency evaluation program. Upon successful completion of the program, the student is eligible for the Wisconsin Nursing Assistant Registry and, as such, for employment in nursing homes, hospitals, home health agencies, hospices and homes for the developmentally disabled.
