What is an STNA?
An STNA, or State-Tested Nursing Assistant, is a person who assists individuals with healthcare needs and ADLs, or activities of daily living. The STNA also provides bedside care, including basic nursing procedures under the supervision of a Registered Nurse or Licensed Practical Nurse.

About Us:
D & S Training Center offers STNA classes in Findlay Ohio for all of Northwest Ohio. We are an approved Ohio Department of Health nurse aide training facility that provides STNA classes for Findlay and the surrounding area. At our facility, we offer classroom training and lecture hours as well as hands-on clinical hours. These criteria meet the Ohio Department of Health’s standards and guidelines. There are NO HIDDEN COSTS within our program.

Objectives and Goals:
STNA Training Program will cover the following topics: nurse aide roles, basis nursing skills, mental health, social service, legal issues, safety & security, signs and symptoms of disease, aging, death and dying, hygiene, grooming and mobility, body mechanics, nutrition, anatomy and physiology, infection control, communication skilled and resident rights. Students will master various personal care skills such as how to help a patient bathe, eat and groom themselves. Clinical experience allows students to demonstrate personal care skills in care settings under the supervision of a RN. (Clinical time maybe scheduled during the week or on the weekend.) The complete curriculum is set forth by Ohio Department of Health (ODH).

During training, nursing assistants will receive the information necessary for safe, effective and respectful care as outlined by the training requirements by the OBRA Act of 1987.
