Nurse Aide Training at the Institute

Full-time Day Class Starting April 14, 2014

The Institute for Caregiver Education has been training nursing assistants in Pennsylvania since 1998. We are committed to providing students with sound education and skills with special emphasis on preparation for careers in eldercare. Experienced instructors, a 1:10 faculty to student ratio, and a strong curriculum give our students the solid preparation they need to succeed in the workplace.

The Institute’s innovative “Foundations of Nursing Assistant Care” curriculum focuses on the five core principles of person-centered care: empowerment, choice, community, respect and relationships. Each value is woven into the curriculum creating a valuable educational experience for the student, leading to improved quality of care and quality of life for individuals in their care.

Our laboratory and clinical settings are outfitted with the equipment used on the job. Students receive hands-on laboratory and clinical practice within actual eldercare settings so they receive on-the-job experience before graduation that meets the needs of our local employers.

Applications for admission [click here to download] are accepted throughout the year. Upon passing a brief screening test to demonstrate 9th grade reading level, prospective students receive a packet describing program policies, and training requirements in detail, along with the required paperwork for enrollment.

Program eligibility is contingent upon passing:
• a reading screening,
• health physical and 2-step TB screening,
• criminal background check(s), and
• having tuition paid in full.
