Two courses offered in the fall semester at the Muhlenberg County Campus - NAA 100 Nursing Skills Assistant I and FRS 2061 Emergency Medical Technician - will give students the opportunity to complete a certificate credential and to enter the workforce for immediate employment.

NAA 100 – Nursing Skills Assistant I - provides knowledge and skills for students to become licensed as a State Registered Nurse Aide and to assume the role and responsibilities required in a long term care setting. The course focuses on communication, infection control, safety, resident/patient rights, and basic nursing skills.

The NAA 100 course is also a pre-requisite for the college’s Integrated Nursing program.

For students interested in a career as a first responder, FRS 2061 - Emergency Medical Technician - covers all knowledge aspects of trauma care as outlined by national standards considered to be the responsibilities of ambulance operations. It involves typical anatomy and physiology, patient assessment, care for respiratory and cardiac emergencies, control of bleeding, application of dressing and bandages, treatment for traumatic shock, care for fractures/dislocation/sprains and strains, medical emergencies, emergency childbirth, burns/heat emergencies, environmental emergencies, principles of vehicle rescue, transportation of patients, and general operations of ambulance systems. The course will be taught by Terry Dossett on Monday and Wednesday from 5-9 p.m. beginning August 18 and ending December 8. FRS 2061 prepares students for national testing required for EMTs and for entry into the college’s Emergency Medical Services - Paramedic program.
