Caremark’s Nursing Assistant Certification Program focuses on training and certifying quality nursing aids to begin their career in the medical field. We do this by teaching a solid foundation of clinical skills and instruction on quality of care. The first phase of the NAC program consists of classroom lectures and video presentations, conducted at our institute in Yakima along with clinical skills demonstration and practice. During this time, students will be required to pass written exams, clinical skills tests, and complete all required coursework. Students attending our NAC classes must have successfully completed all written and practical exams before being allowed to move to the clinical experience phase of their training.
The clinical experience phase of the course consists of patient care, performed on location at an approved clinical site. During the clinical experience phase of the training, students will be required to meet a list of clinical objectives for course completion. Students enrolled in the Caremark’s certified nursing assistant program in Yakima will be supervised at all times. Following successful completion of clinical experience, students will be issued a certificate of completion and will then be eligible for the Washington State Nursing Assistant Certification Examination.
