Nursing Assistant Academic Support

I-Best Program
Classroom success can be yours, even if you have trouble in a traditional classroom setting. The Nursing Assistant, Phlebotomy and Emergency Room Tech programs incorporate the I-Best program, where you can receive help from an additional instructor all quarter long. This second instructor assists your primary teacher helping you with: English as a second language, study skills development, math skills, test taking strategies and study sessions, and career options.

All students are required to take the CASAS exam during the first week of class. This exam will help faculty determine course design and specific student needs to be addressed throughout the program. All students are required to participate in support class activities.

Open Doors Program
For students who are meeting eligibility requirements, Open Doors pays for students' tuition, books and some course fees. Open Doors students receive one-on-one advising and wrap around services to help reduce barriers so they can focus on accomplishing their goals.

To Qualify:

  • Students must be between 16-21 years old
  • Students must NOT have earned a high school diploma
  • Students need to be significantly credit deficient OR more than one year passed their original cohort graduation date
