Nursing Assistant Training

Become a Nursing Assistant & Home Health Aide in 9 weeks (if you are proficient in English) or 15 weeks (if you need ESOL instruction)! The NDEC-L Nursing Assistant Program provides supportive, high quality training to prepare compassionate caregivers for employment as nursing assistants and to pass the state certification exam.  Our curriculum also includes Home Health Aide training. Students experience a blend of classroom instruction and skills practice, clinical experience, Basic Life Support training, development of general employment and academic skills, and direct connection to local health care employers.  Our program is subsidized by grants and donations by local foundations and individuals, so that there is no-cost or very low cost to students.
