About this Program

Health Care is one of the fastest growing industries. An aging population and the retirement of larger numbers of health care workers present a significant need for workers in health occupations. As part of the Health Care Technician Program we help prepare the student to become a Certified Nursing Assistant/Home Health Aide with a broad base of knowledge and understanding for more health career options. Review the Nursing Assistant course information to learn more about the requirements of the course. A Minnesota background check is also required as part of the Nursing Assistant course.
