ALBANY, GA – The Nurse Aide Accelerated Technical Certificate of Credit starts this fall semester at Albany Technical College (ATC). This approved curriculum is nine credit hours total which means completion is now one-quarter of the time. Traditionally the Nurse Aide technical certificate of credit would take 2-3 semesters, but now a student can complete the requirements in one Success Term (7 Weeks). Albany Technical College is now accepting students for the next Success Term entry point, October 11, 2021.
Nurse Aides provide hands-on care and perform routine tasks and activities of daily living under the supervision of nursing and medical staff. Specific duties vary with Nurse Aids handling many aspects of a patient’s care.
Graduates will earn a technical certificate of credit and are eligible to sit for the National Nurse Aide Assessment (NNAAP) exam to become Certified Nurse Assistants.
