Nurse aide students ace exams


Piedmont Community College’s most recent Nurse Aide I students completed their training with a 100 percent pass rate on the North Carolina Nurse Aide I Competency Examination.

With their successful completion of this written and skills exam, these seven students will now be listed on the North Carolina Nurse Aide I Registry and can officially join the health care industry as a Nurse Aide I in our state.

The students include: Nekita Cobbs, Courtney Hoskins, Melissa Owens, Gloria Royster, Tammy Votolato, Lisa Walden and Danisha Winstead.

PCC’s Nurse Aide I course consists of theory and a clinical experience in an assisted living or long-term care facility. The course offers classroom lecture, lab and a clinical rotation. This program prepares students to provide personal care and perform basic nursing skills for the elderly and other adults. Employment opportunities include hospitals, doctor’s offices, and long-term care facilities.

In an effort to meet students’ needs, PCC is offering multiple Nurse Aide I courses with various hours on the Person and Caswell County Campuses beginning in January. Contact the school to register.
