A Nurse Aide Technician is a caregiver who is trained to work in the laboratory as well as personal care environments. This eight-week training program will prepare students in the field of phlebotomy in which they will learn the technique of blood drawing, collection of specimen, and the preservation of these specimen as well mastering the operation and monitoring of cardiovascular machines (EKG). They will also be trained as personal caregivers (nurse aides and home health aides). In this aspect of training, the students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the activities of daily living of the patients while, at the same time, being mindful of the privacy of the patients.
