The University of Hawaiʻi Maui College’s Office of Extended Learning & Workforce Development is seeking applicants for a Nurse Aide Certificate program being offered with full tuition sponsorship.

The 15-week long course will begin on March 21 and end on June 30, 2022. Classes will be held Monday through Thursday, including online lectures during the evenings and in-person labs and clinical simulations during either a morning or evening option. The part-time program involves 10-11 hours of classes per week plus additional time necessary for studying.

Students will learn nurse aide and caregiving fundamentals to prepare for the State certified nurse aide examination and become a skilled entry-level healthcare provider.
