Course Overview

Reality check: the healthcare industry would completely fall apart without exceptional caregivers. They act with integrity. They’re strong communicators. They’re compassionate. And they make every patient feel heard, valued, and respected. A world without caregivers is like a world without art or music—and that’s a world we don’t want to live in.

This course is designed to transform Learners into capable caregivers. It covers a variety of topics like medical terminology, nursing assistant fundamentals, and the basics of home healthcare. You’ll learn about the medical and social needs of clients, as well as the nutrition, personal care, cleaning, and infection control tasks required of professional caregivers.
