Henry County Healthcare Offering Free Certified Nurse Aide Training Course

Paris, TN – Henry County Healthcare Center and Plumley Rehab are currently planning a free certified nurse aide training course.  The course is a 120 hour curriculum and anyone interested in attending must complete a background check and drug screening prior to enrollment to participate.

A nursing aide works directly with patients under the supervision of a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse and typically work in assisted living facilities, hospitals, hospice nursing homes, and home care.  They can be found helping patients with a variety of daily tasks such as self-care, taking vital signs, assisting with range-of-motion exercises, feeding, and other activities of living.  They report to nursing and play a key role in patient care.

HCHC plans to offer the course soon and encourages anyone interested to contact one of the following:
