As technology advances and new processes are developed in the medical field, it is crucial that those working in the field keep their skills and expertise current. This includes STNAs who have graduated from a training program and are already working in a facility, center, or home. A reputable and accredited STNA training program that keeps up with the innovations in the medical field, such as that offered at Premier Choice Health Services, welcome their graduates back to hone the skills they once learned or to renew their CPR or First Aid certification. In fact, PCHS offers CPR Classes specifically for that purpose.
The role of the STNA as part of a patient’s core health care team is becoming increasingly important and the demands on their knowledge and skills are rapidly increasing. Employers and home health care agencies are screaming for more qualified staff and will jump at the chance to recruit well trained STNAs for available positions in a variety of health care settings. Therefore, STNAs, new and old, should take every opportunity to enhance, solidify, and further their patient care knowledge and skills in order to remain efficient and competitive in today’s rapidly advancing health care system.
Likewise, STNAs should always grab the opportunity to hone their communication and people-skills. In fact, a STNA who takes pride in what he or she does never loses the desire to learn more. It is crucial that STNAs understand applicable state laws and regulations regarding their job, as well as maintain a good grasp on skills and knowledge regarding patient care and procedures. Keeping up to date on the laws and mastering the various skills provided in STNA training programs provides a solid base from which to grow in this modern health care system.
If you feel you could use a refresher course to bring your STNA certification, knowledge and skills up to date, Premier Choice Health Services, would be delighted to have you in class. Give them a call today!
