WCC Plans Info Sessions For Short-Term Training For Health Care Professions In March

Information sessions for Wayne Community College’s next Nurse Aide I, Phlebotomy, and Sterile Processing classes will be held in March.

Anyone interested in enrolling in one of these courses in the summer 2022 semester must attend an information session about the registration process for that program.

The sessions are scheduled for noon-2 p.m. on Mondays, March 7, 14, 21 and 28; and 5:30-7 p.m. on Wednesdays, March 9, 16, 23 and 30.

All sessions will be held in Room 101 of the Walnut Building on the college’s main campus in Goldsboro. WCC requires that face masks be worn inside its facilities.

The sessions are free and do not require pre-registration.

Attendees must attend just one session and must stay for the entire session to obtain registration paperwork.

Courses are offered at a variety of times during the day and in both traditional and hybrid (combination of online and in-person) instructional methods. Specific schedules for each course will be announced at the information session.

The summer term begins in mid-May and ends in mid-August.

The Nurse Aide I course introduces basic nursing assistant skills required to provide personal care for patients, residents, or clients in a health care setting. It prepares students for the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program examination necessary for certification and listing on the North Carolina Nurse Aide I Registry.

The Phlebotomy Technician course trains students to draw blood specimens from patients. It is designed to prepare them to take the American Society for Clinical Pathology’s National Phlebotomy Certification Examination.

The Sterile Processing course includes sterilization, disinfection, preparation, storage and distribution of instruments, inventory management, quality assurance, and more, preparing students for work in a hospital’s sterile processing department.
