Butler Tech State Tested Nurse Aid (STNA) Program

Through an innovative partnership, Mercy McAuley students have the opportunity to participate in Butler Tech's State Tested Nurse Aid (STNA) Program. After completing the 2-week program, students are prepared to take the State Tested Nurse Aide exam and be licensed through the Ohio Department of Health. This enables them to be employed by nursing homes as a State Tested Nurse Aide.

STNAs provide daily living services to patients in long-term care facilities and through home healthcare. Activities range from changing bedding, bathing and grooming patients, assisting them with feeding, or monitoring vital signs. The program is a great stepping-stone for our students who are interested in pursuing a nursing degree in college. Students must be at least 16 years old to participate.
