Piedmont Community College’s (PCC) most recent Nurse Aide I students completed their training with a 100% pass rate on the North Carolina Nurse Aide I Competency Examination. With their successful completion of this written and skills exam, these students will now be listed on the North Carolina Nurse Aide I Registry and can officially join the health care industry as a Nurse Aide I in our State.

The recent class includes (photo, left to right) Amber Simpson, Hannah Thadieo, Tiffany Campbell, Krista Ellis, Amanda Recicar, and Nakia Stewart with PCC instructor Shannah Hailey.

“We are so proud of these students and their accomplishments. This is a reflection not only of the students’ desire to give back through a career in healthcare but also the great faculty at PCC,” comments Alisa L. Montgomery, Dean of Health Sciences and Human Services at the College.

PCC’s Nurse Aide I course consists of theory and a clinical experience in an assisted living or long-term care facility. The course offers classroom lecture, lab, and a clinical rotation. This program prepares students to provide personal care and perform basic nursing skills for the elderly and other adults. Employment opportunities include hospitals, doctor’s offices, and long-term care facilities.

Montgomery went on to say, “For those interested in getting started in healthcare, enrolling in PCC’s Nurse Aide program is a great first step as many other careers and healthcare programs require experience in the field as a prerequisite.”

In an effort to meet students’ needs, PCC is offering multiple Nurse Aide I courses with various hours on the Person and Caswell County Campuses beginning in January. They include:
