STNA Classes Newark, OH

State Tested Nursing Assistant classes in Ohio prepare students to provide direct care to residents/patients in nursing homes, long-term care facilities, hospitals, and personal homes. The Ohio Department of Health requires training providers to deliver at least 75 hours of instruction including a minimum of 16 hours at a nursing facility. The aim of the training is to encourage proficiency in ambulation, handwashing, range of motion, personal care, catheter care, transferring, making occupied beds, emptying urinary drainage bags and other essential skills. Students will also learn how to create and maintain a safe environment for patients and team members, collaborate with health care professionals, basic nursing skills, communicate effectively, assist with pain management, and use professional judgment. Nursing assistants work primarily in long-term care facilities but they might also take up positions in patients’ homes, hospitals, and hospice facilities. Under the supervision of a licensed nurse, they will assist patients with personal hygiene, oversee the activities of daily living including feeding, ambulating, turning and positioning, and mobility, ensure patient comfort, record fluid intake and output and vital signs, and report concerns to supervisors.
