Two courses are offered in the spring semester that will give students the opportunity to complete a certificate credential and enter the workforce for immediate employment. NAA 100 – Nursing Skills Assistant I - provides knowledge and skills for nurse aides to assume the role and responsibility required in a long term care setting. The focus is communication, infection control, safety, resident/patient rights, and basic nursing skills. This course is also a pre-requisite for the college’s Integrated Nursing program. Three sections of NAA 100 will be offered in the spring semester:
• NAA100 81M1 meets 4-8 p.m. on Monday/Thursday from January 13-May 11
• NAA100 81M3 meets 8 am – 4 p.m. on Tuesday/Thursday from January 13 – March 9
• NAA100 81M2 meets 8 am – 4 p.m. on Tuesday/Thursday from March 17-May 11
 
For students interested in a career as a first responder, FRS 2061 - Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) - 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 Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5-9 p.m. FRS 2061 prepares students for national testing required for EMTs and for entry into the college’s Emergency Medical Services - Paramedic program.
 
Students interested in any health career field may also benefit from taking AHS 115 – Medical Terminology. Taught by Jennifer Finley on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., the course offers a study of anatomical, physiological and pathological terminology with emphasis on work structures and definition of root words, suffixes, and prefixes from Greek and Latin. Additional emphasis is placed on spelling and pronunciation. No previous knowledge of Greek or Latin is required.
 
MCC tuition costs are the lowest in the state; financial aid is available to those who qualify. Students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as soon as possible to avoid delays in processing aid.
 
All students are encouraged to apply for admission and register for classes before December 1st to avoid the late registration rush. For more information about spring classes, contact Penny Jessup, Muhlenberg County Campus 270-757-9881.
