Nebraska Medicine has been a Premier Partner since the program was launched in 2018. During every CNA course, their team members share the benefits of using your CNA certification while you’re in nursing school. Our students always find their presentations informative and enlightening.
Whether you’re a high school student (age 16 and above), college student, or an individual exploring a second career, Nebraska Medicine welcomes you to exploring a career in health care. With their Job Shadowing program, you are paired with a health care professional to observe and interact with them as they conduct their daily work. While you will not have an opportunity to provide hands-on patient care, the opportunity to observe and ask questions can be priceless when you’re looking to determine your career path.
Emily Haselholf is a nursing student who just celebrated her 1-year anniversary as a Patient Care Tech (their title for C.N.A.) at Nebraska Medicine. She shared what it is like to be a Patient Care Tech and why she recommends working with your certification – and not waiting until you are done with nursing school. She shared how she is exposed to all types of teams from physical therapists, nutritionist, pharmacists and physicians of different specialities. Watch her video HERE.
