    About

    Do you want to provide quality, hands-on care for patients? Nursing assistants work directly with patients and their care teams delivering practical, critical services. 

    In just one quarter, you can learn the basics, get real experience and be prepared to take the Washington State Certified Nursing Assistant test. You will learn to take vital signs, document patient issues, help with medical procedures, dress wounds, safely turn or move patients and more. 

    Nursing assistants work in many different settings including hospitals, long-term care facilities, hospice facilities and in patients’ homes. Becoming a nursing assistant is a great way to enter into the healthcare field.

    SCC’s NAC program uses the Smart Start approach. Students have two instructors available. The two instructors share instruction so all students receive the level of support needed and work to provide both the skills needed to become an NAC and the skills needed to be a successful student. Smart Start provides additional access to specialized study time for all students enrolled. Funding may be available.
