The California Institute of Medical Science in Fresno has added Certified Nurse Assistant and Home Health Aide programs to its curriculum.
The CNA program is a 12-week course to train students on providing basic nursing services, assisting patients with daily tasks, recording and communicating issues to medical staff and more. Applicants must be a high school graduate or have completed a GED test.
The Home Health Aide program is a three-week course for current CNAs that teaches routine individualized health care practices including changing bandages, dressing wounds, monitoring and reporting on health care and other personal care needs at the patient’s home or in a care facility.
Enrollment is open for spring courses, with an orientation planned at the school at 1901 E. Shields, Ste. B-118 in Fresno this evening at 6 p.m.
Students interested in the programs are encouraged to attend the spring orientation, call (559) 490-3911, or go online to www.fresnomedicaltraining.com.
