The Michigan Healthcare Academy (MHA) Nurse Aide Training Program is designed to provide students with the skills necessary to perform basic health care services under the direction of a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to residents or patients who are residing in an acute or long-term care setting. This program is for students who wish to become Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA’s). Michigan Healthcare Academy (MHA) is a State of Michigan approved Nurse Aide Training Program, which consists of a minimum of 75 training hours and includes; lecture/theory, laboratory, and clinical instruction. After successful completion of the Certified Nurse Aide Training Program (NATP), the students will be eligible to take the State of Michigan Competency Evaluation Exam. Once they have passed this test, their names will be placed on the Michigan Nurse Aide Registry and they will be able to start working as a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA)!
The overall objective of this program is to provide quality healthcare services to residents in long-term care facilities, by nurse aides who can competently perform the following tasks:
Form a relationship, communicate and interact competently on a one-to-one basis with the residents;
Demonstrate sensitivity to residents’ emotional, social, and mental health needs through skillfully directed interactions;
Assist residents in attaining and maintaining functional independence;
Exhibit behavior in support and promotion of residents’ rights; and
Demonstrate the observational and documentation skills needed in the assessment of a resident’s health, physical condition, and well-being.
(The above program objectives reflect current state and federal requirements).
