This program is offered at Clark State's Beavercreek, Bellefontaine and Springfield locations.

The Nurse Aide Training course is a four credit-hour course that incorporates both classroom and skills lab instruction and includes 24 clinical hours in a long-term care facility at the end of the course.  Ohio Department of Health (ODH) regulations requires attendance for all classroom and clinical hours. Students must complete specific health requirements and a criminal background check at their own expense prior to participating in the clinical component of the course and will be billed for liability insurance when registering for the course.

Successful completion of this course within two years of entry into the first clinical nursing course of the LPN and RN programs meets the prerequisite nurse aide requirement of these programs. After completing the course, students are eligible to take the written and skills state certification test.  Successful completion of the state certification test is an employment requirement for hire as a nurse aide in Ohio's long-term care facilities.
