Piedmont Community College (PCC) will offer a Nurse Aide I (NA1) Refresher course on the Person County Campus. The class will meet on the following dates: Dec. 2, 3, 5, 9, 10, 12, 16, and 17 from 6–9 p.m.

Students may want to take advantage of this Refresher course since changes will be coming to both the cost and the length of the course. Effective Jan. 1, 2014, the cost of this course will increase to $125, and the course hours will increase to 40 hours.

The NA1 Refresher course prepares students whose listing on the NC Nurse Aide I Registry has expired and students who are listed on the Nurse Aide Registry in another state to take the North Carolina NA1 Competency Examination. The course consists of a review of basic NA1 information and skills practice. Students must bring written documentation of registry listing to the first class. Upon the successful completion of the NA1 Refresher course, students will be eligible to take the Nursing Aide I Competency Exam at PCC.

The registration fee for the course is $70. The deadline to register and pay the registration fee is 12 noon, Mon., Dec. 2. For further information or to register, call Lisa Ashley, (336) 322-2113.
