This certificate program will provide students with theoretical background and psychomotor skills needed to provide basic bedside care. CNA competencies are enhanced by instruction in communication strategies and human behavior. This will prepare the bedside care provider to improve his/her ability to interact with clients, families and other members of the health care team.
Note: Students must be actively listed in the State of Illinois CNA Registry in order to complete this certificate. Students currently listed in the State of Illinois CNA Registry may qualify for proficiency credit for NURS 100. Contact the Dean of Health Professions for information.
