How to Obtain the Education Needed to Become a Nursing Assistant

To become a nursing assistant, students need to complete educational training. Students are able to enter programs within several vocational colleges. Training is focused on teaching students how to care for patients by helping them perform every day tasks.

Career work is done while being supervised by other medical staff, typically nurses. Assisting in routine tasks such as eating, going to the bathroom, and bathing are the main areas that professionals focus on as they work with patients. Responsibilities inside the work place include serving meals, answering calls, and monitor patients. Students learn how to properly escort patients to exam rooms, monitor vital signs, and assist with minor procedures. The scope of activities will depend greatly on the facility in which medical professionals work. Formal training is quickly becoming a professional standard, as more employers are hiring people who are certified. Obtaining an education and becoming certified are the two main steps that students need to complete to successfully enter the health care field.

When beginning the process of enrolling in programs students are able to pick from training options that range from six to fifteen weeks. The vocational college being attended typically determines the length of training. Longer programs usually provide students with more time for clinical training. Clinical courses allow students to work directly with hospital staff and patients. The federal mandated requirement for students attending nursing assistant schools is at least 75 credit hours. Training prepares students to work with sick, elderly, and injured patients by helping them perform everyday tasks. Program coursework may vary but most programs incorporate the same basic topics, which can include:

Nutrition
Patients Rights
Anatomy
Hygiene

 

The function of the body, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and first aid courses are all worked through to prepare students to enter careers. Inside clinical coursework supervisors make sure students understand every aspect of the field before letting them obtain certification.

Working to become a certified nursing assistant may require students to complete more than the minimum credit hour requirement. Many states require students to complete programs and obtain 150 hours of clinical experience after coursework is finished. A comprehensive examination follows training and tests students on both the theoretical knowledge and clinical experience skills obtained through schooling. Students can pursue voluntary certification by completing exams given by the National Association for Home Care and Hospice. Certified professionals are required to maintain continuing education credits that keep their skills up-to-date. The field is estimated to grow in size by 19 percent in the next ten years. The Bureau of Labor Statistics connects this increase to the care needed for today’s elderly population that will require help.

Students that successfully complete training have multiple opportunities available to them in the industry. Quickly obtaining certification once programs are completed will help students stay competitive in this popular field. Obtaining an education can begin when students decide on which accredited nursing assistant colleges to enter. Agencies like the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) fully accredit quality educational training programs that offer the best education possible. Choose a program and start working to become a nursing assistant.

Franchise Opportunities – Children’s Education Businesses

daycare
by njxw

If you have background as an educator, a daycare provider, preschool provider, or are an entrepreneur or a business executive that loves children and would enjoy the challenge of making a difference in their educational lives, perhaps a Childhood Education and Development franchise might be the perfect business for you.

In general, education is one of those industries that people invest in no matter what the economic climate. In fact, in difficult financial times, families invest more heavily in educating their children because they want their kids to have better opportunities than they had themselves, so childhood education is most definitely a recession-proof industry.

 Below are some of the features of a Childhood Education franchise opportunity.

Currently, the child education industry generates about $ 60 billion in annual revenue and provides more than 3.5 million jobs.
Normal business hours. You won’t be working during the evening or on weekends. Business is conducted during “normal” business hours, so it truly is a lifestyle opportunity. 
 It’s a business you can truly feel good about. Promoting education, whether via standard teaching practices, or by utilizing a tutoring curriculum, is, in itself, a “feel good” type of business. 
 Most available opportunities feature low start up and operating costs. Some can be run from a home office.
 State of the art software is provided, which effectively manages all student academics.
 Professional tutors are readily available. Many franchisees never have found the need to advertise for tutors.
 As the owner/franchisee, your only role is to run the business. You will be managing people and scheduling sessions. You will not be providing the core service, but leveraging the time and efforts of others.

Some Children’s franchise businesses have specific niches and features that they focus on. They may specialize in early educational enhancement, language education, art education programs, educational technology solutions, and tutoring programs, to name a few.  Your franchise consultant can help you zero in on your skill set, goals, and background to help you in determining which opportunity is the best match for you.
