Nurses Aide Training Program
(843) 744 - 1249
PATCH will prepare you for the responsibilities you will assume as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). A CNA is an individual who is responsible and capable of taking care of sick, disabled and elderly patients. They are a very important part of the health care team. They are the primary care givers of patients in hospitals, assistant living facilities, nursing homes and physician offices.
Before Nurse Aides can apply for a job, they must obtain their Medication Technician certification. PATCH Career Institute is one of the only schools that incorporates the Medication Technician certification training in the course curriculum. Students will receive their Medication Technician certification after completion of the program.
PATCH's Nurse Aide program provides classroom and supervised clinical training in the fundamentals of safe and knowledgeable care giving. In addition to preparing students for the South Carolina Nurse Aide Competency Evaluation Testing Program, the course provides job skills training and helps students cultivate the attitudes and behaviors of a competent care giver.
Upon successful completion of the state examination, the graduate is a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) as defined by state and federal laws. This certificate is required for employment. CNAs are sought after employees for hospitals, long-term care facilities or nursing homes, care homes, private homes, adult day care, clinics and hospice.

Evening classes (PM) are held from 6:00pm to 10:00pm.
