Health Care Assistant

Our Health Care Assistant program prepares an individual to assist in providing health care as a member of the health care team under the direction of a health care professional.

The Health Care Assistant program is a one semester program. MDCC has three area programs: one located at the Greenville Higher Education Center in Greenville, one at the Golden Age Nursing Home in Greenwood, and one located at North Sunflower Medical Center in Ruleville. The programs at the GHEC and NSMC are daytime programs, while the program at Golden Age Nursing Home offers afternoon/evening classes.  All programs are taught each fall and spring semester. Clinical experiences are provided at area health care agencies.

A certificate of completion will be awarded to those who satisfactorily complete the HCA curriculum. Upon successful completion of the curriculum, students are eligible to sit for the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program Examination. Students who complete the program may qualify for employment as Homemakers, Nurse Assistants, Long-Term Care Aides or Home Health Aides in the Mississippi health care industry.
