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 seven 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 students include:
Nekita Cobbs, Courtney Hoskins, Melissa Owens, Gloria Royster, Tammy Votolato, Lisa Walden, and Danisha Winstead.

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.

Alisa Montgomery, Dean of Health Sciences and Human Services, said, “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:

Person County Campus:
