A Nurse Aide (NA), also known as a Nursing Assistant, is an important member of the health care team. NAs provide basic patient care under the direction of nursing staff, and help with basic patient hygiene and tasks related to proper maintenance of healthcare facilities. NAs may feed, bathe, dress, groom, move/reposition patients and change linens.
MGCC offers a workforce training program to prepare students for the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program (NNAAP) Examination, the licensing examination that is required by many employers. The NNAAP Exam is made up of a Written (or Oral) Examination and a Skills Evaluation, both of which must be passed to be certified as a Nurse aide in Virginia.

  • Answer patient call signals, signal lights, bells, or intercom systems to determine patients' needs.

  • Review patients' dietary restrictions, food allergies, and preferences to ensure patient receives appropriate diet.
  • Measure and record food and liquid intake or urinary and fecal output; report changes to medical staff.
  • Record vital signs, such as temperature, blood pressure, pulse, or respiration rate, as directed by medical staff.
