《卫生保健工作者背景调查法案, 于1998年修订, 2004, 2007, 和2009年, requires all students in a Nurse Aide Training Program to submit to a fingerprint-based background check before working directly with patients (225 ILCS 46/33).
在HLTH 141的临床部分之前, 所有学生都将接受指纹背景调查. A student with a positive background check containing disqualifying convictions as defined by state law will not be allowed to enter the clinical portion of this course, unless a waiver granted by the 伊利诺斯州公共卫生部 is documented on the 医护人员注册处. 学生 who are not eligible to perform the clinical portion will not be able to successfully complete the class and will be administratively dropped from the course.
请参阅 医护人员注册处 有关豁免的更多信息. 学生 who suspect they may have a disqualifying conviction on record should complete the waiver application process before registering for the course.
Agreements with our clinical partners require students submit documentation of specified immunizations. Failure to comply for any reason may result in dismissal from the program.
学生 are required to complete a two-step tuberculosis screening and submit a waiver/consent of the Flu Vaccine and Hepatitis B Vaccine. Record of immunizations and waiver/consent forms 必须 be submitted to the 健康 Professions office by the given deadline. 学生 should check with their county health department or family physician for available dates and costs.
Pre-existing health conditions that may restrict a student’s class/lab/clinical performance require a primary-care provider’s signed medical release.
学生 are required to attend a minimum of 80 theory/lab practice hours and a minimum of 40 clinical hours to meet both State and course requirements. Failure to complete the minimum theory and clinical requirements will result in dismissal from the course. In addition, there is State-mandated intensive training all students 必须 complete. 例如, students 必须 complete 12 hours of training in Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias; failure to complete 12 hours will result in failure of the course.
学生必须保持76%或以上, meet the 伊利诺斯州公共卫生部 training requirements and pass all 21 IDPH-mandated performance skills in order to successfully complete the course. 学生 will have three attempts to pass the 21 IDPH-mandated performance skills. 如果学生在第三次尝试中没有通过, 该学生在行政上将被除名.
Various performance skill tasks presented in the class may require “hands-on” experiences in the laboratory and clinical setting. 学生 必须 participate in these activities in order to learn the identified nurse aide training performance skill tasks.
学生 必须 successfully complete HLTH 141 with a “C” or better and pay the appropriate fee to be eligible to take the IDPH Competency Evaluation exam. 通过能力考试后, students will be added to the IDPH 医护人员注册处 and will be eligible to work as a certified nurse assistant.
