The Nurse Assistant and Home Health Aide (NA/HHA) program courses are designed to prepare students to perform the basic nursing skills required in acute hospitals, long-term care facilities, and home health care agencies. Special emphasis is placed on health care provisions and modifica­tions in community health care settings.

These courses are approved by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).

Upon successful completion of the Nurse Assistant course, a Shasta College certificate of completion is issued. Following completion of the NA course, some students are then eligible to apply for the state competency examination​.

Prior to enrollment, students, at their own expense, are required to meet program Health and Safety Clinical Requirements. Please see the NA/HHA Health and Safety Requirements page for more information.
