    • General

      Welcome! In general, the responsibility for offering patients the opportunity to perform personal care tasks usually falls upon the members of the nursing department at most facilities such as hospitals and nursing homes. Normally, nurse aides are the members of the nursing team that tend to deliver the vast majority of personal care due to the enormous amounts of time they spend with patients. 

      Always be mindful that the 'N' in nurse aide stands for 'nurse'! Thus, the nurse aide role is an indispensable aspect of the nursing department at most healthcare organizations. The intended purpose of this course is to provide a brief survey on the types of personal care activities typically performed by nurse aides. In addition, rationales for performing these personal care tasks will be provided.
