Nursing Assistant

  • Seek A Fulfilling Career as a Nursing Assistant!

    Nursing Assistants provide care for patients in long-term care facilities, hospitals, home health care, hospice or mental health facilities. Nursing assistants' duties vary, from providing help with activities of daily living for the patients such as ambulating, feeding, to bathing, toileting, dressing etc. under the supervision of a Registered nurse or Licensed Practical nurse. High school completion or GED® is not required. Please note: This course does not qualify for Financial Aid.

    One of the prerequisites for any nursing program in Nebraska and many other states is that you must be on the Nurse Aide Registry. To do that you must take an approved course and pass state exams. Successful completion of this course will put you on the registry.

    Southeast Community College’s Nursing Assistant Course is approved by the Nebraska Department of Health.

    The first session of class is mandatory and attendance of all sessions is required. Only register for a section in which you can attend EVERY class. The Nursing Assistant course consists of 100 contact hours of lecture, clinical and lab instruction. Successful completion of all materials covered is required to meet the state requirements and enables you to pass the state-approved exams. Absences exceeding 7.5 hours for any reason may result in failure of this course. No-shows do not receive an automatic refund.

    Clinical

    Clinicals will be held in Lincoln at a long term care facility the last few weeks of class. White clothing and white shoes are required for clinicals - NO JEANS. Bending and lifting are required for successful completion of certain skills.

    You must receive a minimum 70% final grade. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be eligible to take the written and clinical state competency exams. Successful completion of these exams will allow your name to be placed on the Nebraska Nursing Assistant Registry.

    To be placed on the Nebraska Nurse Aide Registry, the state of Nebraska requires that individuals must meet the following requirements:

    • Must be at least 16 years of age.
    • Must have no convictions of crime involving moral turpitude.
    • Must be able to speak and understand the English language or a language understood by a substantial portion of the health care facility population.
    • Must successfully complete a basic course of training and competency evaluation program for Nursing Assistants approved by the Nebraska Department of Health.

    In order to be placed on the Nebraska Nurse Aide Registry, the state of Nebraska may require some nursing assistants to complete this one-hour course.
