Online Case Management Degrees

Learning the Healthcare Basics with a Degree or Training Program in Patient Care

One of the most fundamental and important parts of any healthcare job is patient care. Many patients receiving treatment feel stressed, scared, and confused. Good patient care helps to assuage their fears and concerns. Earning your degree in patient care prepares you for a career as a nursing aide.

Degrees in Patient Care

Degrees in patient care can usually be earned in one or two years. Training programs are available at vocational and technical schools and community colleges. Topics covered in patient care degree programs include anatomy and physiology, communication skills, body mechanics, nutrition, and infection control.

Nursing Aide Responsibilities

Getting your training in patient care and working as a nursing aide is a great way to decide if the healthcare industry is for you. Nursing aides work 40 hours per week on average. Because many of them work in hospitals, which are open 24 hours a day, they might have to work some evenings and weekends.

Nursing aides' responsibilities include answering patients' call lights, taking patients' vital signs, serving meals, assisting patients in eating, dressing, and bathing, and delivering messages to patients. Nursing aides who work in nursing homes generally get to know their patients quite well, while the quick patient stays at hospitals make developing relationships harder.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that jobs for nursing aides should grow much faster than average. Hospitals and doctors' offices continuously need caring, responsible people to work in patient care.
