The Nurse Aide Training Program at Advance Medical in Grand Rapids, Mi. is by far the most popular course we offer. The local job market for this area of health care and nursing is currently second to none. All graduates of this program are finding many opportunities in the health care field at this time, we have many employers asking for students to apply. This is also a great way to accumulate your experience and patient contact hours for a RN or PA degree program that you may already be enrolled in, and earn an income while doing so. We have graduated many Health Career students with this purpose in mind.
Many potential students have asked us the question :
" What makes our program different than the other programs in the area ? "
We feel there are many reasons, but my number one answer to them is class size. We try to only enroll up to twelve students per class. We feel this provides a much greater retention rate with our students, and produces a well trained caregiver. We are in this business to produce well trained caregivers for area employers, not just to graduate students.
We also publish our own textbook here at Advance Medical Training. Designed around the michigan model, and years of experience in the field, in Michigan. We do not use a nationally published text. All materials for your program are provided by the school, no extra trips anywhere to collect your supplies for classes. All you need is a highlighter and a pen !!
