If you are planning on entering the healthcare field, then you should consider becoming a nursing assistant. As a nursing assistant, you will be working hand-in-hand with other healthcare team members, especially nurses. You will utilize the basic nursing care knowledge and skills to take care of patients like infection control, monitoring vital signs, mental health and rehabilitation, assisting in ambulation, bed baths, therapeutic communication, as well as post mortem care.
In order to work in Colorado as one, you must have a nurse aide license, which means that you have to complete a state-approved training program. These programs are being offered by colleges, high schools, as well as nursing homes. You must have at least 80 hours in both theoretical lessons and hands-on training. After the completion of your training, you can then apply for the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program Exams which are conducted by Pearson VUE. For more information, you can contact them at (888) 274-5050.
Those who have taken up nursing or nursing-related courses are also welcome to work as nurse aides in this state. They will also be required to have a CNA license when they work, which means that they must apply for the license exams. RNs, LPNs, and LPTs that received their training and license from another state may directly apply for the exams by providing a copy of their license and//or proof of their training and experience.
