Health 141: Nurse Assistant Training

Health 141 (HLTH 141) Nurse Assistant Training is approved by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) to provide instruction in basic nursing skills in theory, laboratory, and clinical settings. Upon successful completion of all course requirements, which includes meeting the Health Care Worker Background Check Act criteria, students are eligible to apply for the Competency Evaluation Exam. Students who successfully pass the Competency Evaluation Exam are added to the IDPH Health Care Worker Registry and are eligible to work as Certified Nurse Assistants (CNAs).

HLTH 040 Nurse Assistant Competency Skills Assessment is designed to assess the basic nursing skills of previously certified CNAs who have not worked for a minimum of 8 paid hours during the previous twenty-four (24) months. An IDPH-approved competency evaluator determines if the student is competent in the 21 IDPH-mandated performance skills and eligible to re-test. This course may be offered in the fall and spring semesters, based on instructor availability.  Students should register for this course in the Health Professions office (S162). Students must have a Richland student ID number and be listed on the Health Care Worker Registry as a previously certified CNA in order to register for HLTH 040. Please contact the Illinois Department of Public Health at 217-785-5133 to verify CNA status prior to registering for this course.

Overview

Admission Information

Enrollment

Due to state standards and instructor availability, HLTH 141 is restricted to 8 students per section. Students who are not the first 8 students registered for the courses are placed on a waitlist. In the event that a seat in the course becomes available, the Health Professions Office calls the first person on the waitlist. Students have 48 hours to respond to the offer until the week before classes when it decreases to 24 hours. Failure to respond within the given time frame results in removal from the waitlist and the next person being contacted.

Placement on the waitlist does not guarantee enrollment in subsequent semesters nor does the waitlist rollover. Students must enter their names in the lottery the subsequent semester.
