Geriatric Certified Nurse Aide
The FSCC Geriatric Certified Nurse Aide course is 90-hour, state-regulated CNA course that follows federal guidelines. It is divided into two parts: part one is lecture and lab, and part two is a lecture and clinical experience. The first part of the course provides trainees with experience in performing basic nursing skills. The majority of supervised clinical experience for a Nurse Aide Trainee I takes place in a simulated laboratory setting. Part II of the course requires performance of direct care tasks within the licensed adult care home environment. Trainees are designated as a Nurse Aide Trainee II. They are eligible to provide direct, individual care to residents in a licensed adult care home under the direction of a licensed nurse.
