Electrocardiograms (ECG or EKG) are tests that monitor a patient’s heart activity and measures the electrical impulse looking for patterns and rhythms to diagnose potential heart conditions. An EKG technician is trained to perform EKGs and stress tests on patients. Careers in the health field are growing fast, and EKG Technicians are needed in many healthcare facilities.

- Nurse Aide
Nurse aide or nursing assistants are an expanding role in the health care field. Working directly with a nurse, the nurse aid is essential in the care and lives of patients. Nurse aides are needed in every medical field and perform a variety of duties daily. These can include: bathing, feeding, making beds, taking vital signs, turning and positioning, observing, reporting and many other tasks that help patients and nurses. Nurse aides are always in demand in the rapid growing healthcare field.
Phlebotomy is the process of drawing blood from a patient and then taking the specimen to a lab for testing. Phlebotomists are specially trained to draw blood efficiently while also managing the specimen from start to finish, and ensuring the patient is confortable and informed. Phlebotomy is an ever-growing field, and trained professionals are high demand in a variety of healthcare locales. In order to become a phlebotomist, a certification must be attained. CCA’s will help prepare students for the exam, and provide the opportunity to go beyond phlebotomy to obtain a Patient Care Technician certificate.
Through CCA’s commitment to student success, policies are put in place to foster a safe learning environment.
