The state requires that all training programs in the state offer at least 150 hours of both classroom and clinical training. Every program is required to be headed by a licensed nurse with at least 2 years of nursing experience. The nurse must also have completed 24 hours of continuing education on implementing, planning, and evaluating nursing programs 6 months prior to the start of work. Examples of the thing that students will learn in the program include basic nursing care, nutrition, vital signs, human anatomy, medical terminologies, and many more.
Upon completing a training program the aspiring nursing aide can now submit his Initial Application form (http://www.asisvcs.com/publications/pdf/070503.pdf) to the CDPH.
