* courses that include MOS certification components



Students are responsible for all prerequisites and/or co-requisites. See course descriptions. This program is intended to prepare students for employment, and therefore has not been designed to transfer to senior institutions. For clarification, see a WSCC advisor.

Prior to clinical experience in the Nurse Assistant course, a criminal background investigation will be required of students. Any negative factors in students’ backgrounds may limit placement in one or more agencies. Attempts will be made to adjust for this limitation, but if accommodations cannot be made, continuation in the nurse assistance course will not be allowed.

All courses must be completed with a grade of “C” (2.0) or better for graduation.
