TESDA Nursing Aide Training / Health Care Services NC II

Nursing aide plays a vital role in every healthcare facility such as hospitals, barangay health centers, clinics, and nursing homes. They cover a wide variety of labor-intensive jobs to ensure that patients are well taken care of during their stay in healthcare institutions. They are knowledgeable when it comes to bed making, assisting patients, and properly handling health-related waste.

Nursing aides are often working under the supervision of nurses. They work hand in hand with nurses to provide quality care to their patients. In the hospitals, you will see them assisting patients who have mobility problems. They are those healthcare workers who push the wheelchair to transport patients from one place to another.

They are also skilled when it comes to communicating with their patients to know the latter’s concerns. During unlikely events, they know how to apply basic first aid to stabilize the condition of the patients.

You will also find nursing aides working in nursing homes. They assist elderlies to perform their daily routines. They help the elderly change their clothes, assist them while they eat during meal time, and support them when they want to do some exercise.
