Nurse aide suggested course sequence (PDF)
To apply for the nurse aid program:
- Complete the application steps listed on this page.
- Email the program assistant (listed on the nurse aide program page) for permission to register. Be sure to include your Central Piedmont student ID number in your email.
Central Piedmont offers the nurse aide program course during the spring, summer, and fall semesters.
As a condition of admission, you are required to verify that you are a U.S. citizen or an otherwise legally authorized resident of the United States.
If you have received permission in a previous semester, please be sure that you have the most current information packet and health record. You may request this from the program assistant listed on the nurse aide program page. The required forms (medical physical, immunizations, urine drug screening results, authorizations, and criminal background check request) are submitted on the first in-class meeting of the program. The forms are not part of the registration process. Candidates for the certified nurse aide NC competency evaluation are required to bring two forms of current, not expired, official signature-bearing identification (one of which must be photo-bearing) to the test site. One form of identification must be a U.S. government-issued social security card, signed and non-laminated. Name and social security number must match what is on the registration record (page 7, NNAAP Pearson Vue North Carolina Nurse Aide I Candidate Handbook).
