State Tested Nurse Aide Program (STNA)
Our 75-hour noncredit course introduces students to the principles and procedures of basic patient care. The course is regulated by the Ohio Department of Health and 100 percent attendance is required. The students will be given both classroom and clinical experience. An average of 80 percent or higher is required on quizzes and the final exam to complete the classroom section of the course and proceed to the clinical rotation. Each student must pass a two step TB test and a criminal background check prior to entering the clinical experience.
To receive college credit for the STNA course, please see the Nurse Aide Short-Term Technical Certificate.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be eligible to sit for the Ohio nurse aide exam. After passing both the written and skills portion of the state exam, students will meet employment qualifications required by many long-term care, home health care, clinic and hospital facilities. This class also fulfills the prerequisite requirement needed for many nursing programs.
