Special Message from the instructor:
“I’m very excited for the opportunity to “meet” other nurses who are eager to begin teaching in a Basic Nursing Assistant Training Program and are seeking knowledge about how to teach in a classroom and in the clinical setting. In this course, you’ll learn about the laws and rules governing nursing assistant education in Illinois. You’ll also learn many education techniques that will assist you to teach effectively to a variety of learners as you begin your career as a nursing assistant educator. I look forward to sharing this learning journey with you!”
