    • General

      Nursing assistants are allied healthcare workers that play a truly indispensable role in the care of patients with all sorts of chronic disease processes. They provide highly valuable assistance by helping patients with daily living activities, observing for symptoms related to the diseases, reporting changes in condition, and offering psychosocial support as needed. 

      The focus of this course is to discuss a number of common diseases, as well as the nursing assistant's unique role and responsibilities in the care of patients with these particular health conditions. Due to the massive amount of face-to-face time spent with patients, the nursing assistant is in a prime position to help enhance the quality of life of these patients.
