This document is designed to assist the teacher in a nurse assistant certification program. The program is intended to prepare students for entry-level employment in a long-term care facility or with a licensed home health care agency. The 135-hour course teaches basic skills in patient care that will qualify the student to assist the licensed practical nurse or the registered professional nurse in direct patient care. Introductory materials include a bibliography, list of audiovisual resources, and glossary. The course consists of 9 units and 72 lessons. Although the same scope of unit covers all lessons within the unit, a new set of student objectives accompanies each lesson. A lesson title page provides the objectives, supplementary teaching/learning items, teacher resources, and introduction of lesson. Other lesson materials may include an outline with definitions and basic subject matter; procedures for teacher demonstrations; classroom discussion topics or questions; classroom, laboratory, and other activities; evaluation items and answer keys; worksheets; and handouts. Units concern the nurse assistant, the client's environment, the client, safety, food service, personal care, elimination, restorative nursing, and special procedures. Appendixes include federal Medicare regulations, a reprint of Connecticut's Common Core of Learning, and a sample of a contractual agreement for Nurse Assistant Program. (YLB)
