Program Overview

You don’t need a stethoscope to know nurses have huge hearts! Tri County Tech’s Pre-Nursing program allows you to put your best foot forward into a rewarding healthcare career. The one-year program has been developed, in cooperation with medical professionals, to educate students with clinical experiences. You will have hands-on training in our newly renovated facility to become a certified nursing assistant. Upon the completion of the program, you will be qualified to take the state certification exam necessary for entry-level employment as a CNA. The Program focuses on the study of medical terminology, infection control, medical law and ethics, vital signs, CPR, first aid, and employability skills.

“My mother had always been sick so I always had natural caregiving tendencies and the Tri County Pre-Nursing Program really clicked, it has been the best decision” – Brianna B., 2018
