Nursing Assistant II

Modified on Wed, 02 Nov 2022 at 08:18 AM

The Nursing Assistant II course at Forsyth Tech is a 180 hour state approved course which teaches basic nursing skills to the student in accordance with the North Carolina Board of Nursing. Tasks include oxygen therapy, tracheostomy care, sterile dressing changes, IV fluid assistive activities, ostomy care, gastrostomy feedings/nasogastric feedings, and catheterizations. Classroom, laboratory and clinical learning experiences are included. Upon successful completion of the course and skill/competency evaluation, the student is eligible to apply for listing as a Nurse Aide II by the NC Board of Nursing Nurse Aide Registry and will be considered as being a Certified Nursing Assistant II (CNA II).

Note: Students must initiate a criminal background check and drug screening before registering for the Nursing Assistant II course. If denied admission to a clinical facility, the student will not be able to progress in the program thus failing to meet clinical requirements and will be unable to continue in the program.
