Nursing Fundamentals Student Internships
Pamlico County High School's 2017 Nursing Fundamentals students are making final preparations and practicing skills. Soon, they will begin their clinical internships in various long-term care and healthcare facilities. These students will perform direct patient/resident care and observe healthcare professionals during their clinical experiences; thus, gaining valuable knowledge and life skills.
Prior to placement in a clinical internship, students are required to complete a rigorous training program established by the North Carolina Board of Nursing for Nursing Assistants. Students are trained to perform a minimum of 81 skills including, but not limited to, professionalism, knowledge of medical law and ethics, and patient safety.
Upon successful completion of the Nursing Fundamentals course, students are eligible to sit for the North Carolina Certified Nursing Aide I examination to become CNAI's. Obtaining the CNA credential better prepares health science education students for the expectations of post-secondary education opportunities and seeking employment following graduation.
