Surry Community College Nurse Aide students completed classes in December.
SCC offers Nurse Aide Level I and II certification courses throughout the year. Nurse Aide I and Nurse Aide II
are taught through the college’s Workforce, Technologies &
Community Education Division, while similar courses are offered through
the Curriculum Division as a prerequisite for students pursuing the
Associate Degree Nursing or Practical Nursing degrees. Curriculum
classes are identified as NAS 101 Nursing Assistant I or NAS 102 Nursing
The Nurse Aide I or Certified
Nursing Assistant (CNA) I class is a 160-192 hour course that prepares
students to provide personal care and perform basic nursing skills for
the elderly and other adults. Upon successful completion of the CNA I
and the requisite certification exam, students will be listed on the
North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation Nurse Aide I
Registry and may seek employment in a variety of healthcare settings.
192-hour Nurse Aide II or CNA II course prepares students to perform
more complex skills for patients or residents. Those skills are approved
by the North Carolina Board of Nursing, and upon satisfactory
completion of the course, students will be listed with the North
Carolina Board of Nursing for a fee of $24. In order to enroll in the
Nurse Aide II course, one must have a high school diploma or High School
Equivalency (HSE) diploma, current American Heart Association
Healthcare Provider CPR certification, and a current North Carolina
Nurse Aide I credential.

several Nurse Aide I and II classes at SCC. The cost of enrollment for
either course is $183 plus $55 for a urine drug screening and criminal
background check, $16 for malpractice insurance, and $3 for student
insurance. Out-of-state residents are required to pay an additional
$12.50 fee, and all fees are subject to change. The cost does not
include the fee required for the CNA I certification exam.
