Register for the Nurse Assistant Information Session

Walk-ins will be seen from 10am - 2pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The Nurse Assisting (NA) program prepares students for entry level employment in various health care settings as a nursing assistant. The program (NUR158) combines classroom instruction with clinical laboratory (at PVCC), skilled care (nursing home) and, when possible, acute care (hospital) experiences. Students who complete the program are eligible to take a written and practical certification examination and work as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). Licensing requirements are the exclusive responsibility of the Arizona State Board of Nursing.

Upon satisfactory completion of the Nursing Assistant Course (NUR 158), the student is eligible to receive a certificate of completion from Paradise Valley Community College.
