EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER 2021, ALL NURSE AIDE AND MEDICATION AIDE STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO BE FULLY VACCINATED(COVID-19) BEFORE THE START OF CLASS. WE WILL CHECK THE VALIDITY OF ALL VACCINATION CARDS.
During the COVID-19 Pandemic we too are doing our part to ensure we are using safe practices and following the guidelines mandated by the state and the Virginia Board of Nursing. We are fortunate to be one of few schools in Virginia to have online classes that were approved by the Virginia Board of Nursing, before COVID. With that said , we offer our students well-developed and structured online courses. The online courses are presented via video lecture with various test your knowledge exercises in each lesson module. Skills lab sessions are completed, as scheduled, at the school. Clinicals will be completed, as scheduled, at one of our contracted facilities. The safety of our students, and staff are our main priority. Therefore, we will ensure all facilities are using safe practices before attending clinicals. Students will be subject to COVID testing at the clinical sites.
