GET STARTED IN A CAREER
AS A NURSING ASSISTANT WITH IRSC

Preparing to become a Nursing Assistant is a great way to launch a career in the healthcare field. Anyone can take that first step by registering for the Nursing Assistant course (HCPV410C) at Indian River State College. IRSC is now accepting applications for Spring Nursing Assistant classes.

Nursing Assistants work under the supervision of nursing or medical staff to provide basic care in hospitals, nursing homes, physicians’ offices, clinics and in-home care. Nursing Assistants help with patient care activities such as bathing and feeding. Becoming a Nursing Assistant is the first step to becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN).

The Nursing Assistant course is a 165 clock-hour program consisting of 1 course. No high school diploma or GED is required and applicants must be 18 years old. The Nursing Assistant course takes about seven weeks to complete. Students attend class approximately 20 hours per week. Total cost for the course is $1,242.

Students must have completed a 5-hour Health Care Provider Level Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) certification prior to the start date of class.

There are still seats available for Nursing Assistant courses with these dates and locations:

• Jan. 8 to March 1 in Fort Pierce
• Jan. 9 to Feb. 8 in Vero Beach
• March 5 to May 7 in Fort Pierce
• Jan. 9 to April 19 in Okeechobee
