MONTOUR FALLS – Schuyler Hospital now offers a training program for hospital aides.

The program is held twice a week, runs for 6.5 weeks and consists of both classroom and hands on education. The program is for non-certified nursing aides.

If you or someone you know is interested in signing up for the next training session, contact Schuyler Hospital at (607) 535-7121 or email info@schuylerhospital.org

Nursing aides, sometimes called nursing assistants, help provide basic care for patients in the hospital, under the direction of nursing staff. Becoming a nursing aide is ideal for those wishing to enter into the medical field and learn on-the-job about the field of nursing.

 

Employment of nursing assistants and orderlies is projected to grow 17 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. Because of the growing elderly population, many nursing assistants and orderlies will be needed to assist and care for these patients.
