Add to your nurse aide skills and learn how to provide efficient restorative care to residents.  

What is a restorative nursing program? In many health care facilities, nursing interventions are utilized that promote residents' ability to live as independently and safely as possible. A Restorative Aide functions in an expanded nurse aide role as they perform duties to help residents function as normally as possible. These duties go beyond rehabilitation; they are a process of therapeutic treatments or approaches that restore and maintain the highest level of functioning a resident can possess.

In the Restorative Aide course, you will learn how to assist a resident in achieving and maintaining optimal physical, mental and psychosocial function. Take the next step and expand your capabilities.
