Emily Griffith Technical College: Nurse Assisting Registered Apprenticeship

Nurse Assisting Registered Apprenticeship

Interested in a career where you can take care of others? In our Nurse Assisting Registered Apprentice Program, all your educational costs will be covered and you’ll gain the skills you need to provide basic care to patients, take vital signs, and assist patients in daily activities they might have trouble with on their own. You will also gain paid work experience and industry mentoring when you become an apprentice.

This Nurse Assisting Registered Apprenticeship program is designed to have you complete the Nurse Assisting certificate program that will prepare you to take the state certification exam, obtain work experience from an employer invested in the growth of their employees, and take additional Nursing pathway courses. 

Upon completion of your Nurse Assisting program, apply to be an apprentice with our employer partners and start your apprenticeship right away. Over your approximately one-year apprenticeship program, you will take two additional courses alongside your on-the-job learning to complete the US Department of Labor registered apprenticeship program. Your employer will work with you to develop a schedule that allows you to balance work and your courses, ensuring successful completion of the program.

This program is 100% FREE to you, thanks to funding from Care Forward Colorado and Emily Griffith Technical College.

The Nurse Assisting Registered Apprenticeship program is a Department of Labor Registered Apprenticeship program. This program is not accredited by the Council on Occupational Education (COE) nor is it eligible for federal student aid.

I’m interested! What’s next?

  • First, apply with Emily Griffith Technical College and register for a Nurse Assisting cohort and complete the program.
