Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic Disclaimer
Beginning March 2020, Connecticut along with the rest of the United States suffered the effects of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
Day-to-day life as it existed before the pandemic changed drastically, and individuals and institutions adapted to new practices and
behaviors. Normative actions now include wearing facial masks, maintaining social distance, and working and learning remotely.
Learning about and adherence to Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance has become a way of life. As we plan for the
next academic year, so much is uncertain, including the continuing threat of COVID-19.

The Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU) must adapt to meet this reality. Going forward, it is up to all of us – faculty, staff and
students – to do our part to ensure our campus community stays as healthy and safe as possible. This is a shared responsibility, and every
member of our community must adhere to national, state, and local health guidelines and requirements, and adhere to those measures
Manchester Community College deems safe and appropriate for the campus. This will include social distancing, wearing masks or other
facial coverings, not reporting to class or work if sick, and isolating when required.

Although Manchester Community College is readily developing a schedule of courses that include some in-class and on-ground
instruction, no one knows what the future may hold. In the case of an outbreak of the coronavirus or other illness, the institutions reserve
the right to adapt the format of any class to an entirely online/distance learning modality as public health conditions warrant. Such
change will not result in any increase or decrease of tuition and fees. We all understand that tuition and fees are in exchange for learning,
academic credit, and certain non-academic services regardless of whether taught on-ground, in a hybrid environment or entirely remotely.

Most important to CSCU and Manchester Community College is the health, safety, and welfare of every member of its community. Yet,
despite campus efforts to comply with health and safety guidelines, it is not possible to guarantee a disease free environment, or to
guarantee that campuses will not close and return to an online-only learning environment. These are the realities of working and learning
during a pandemic. If you choose to return to campus during the pandemic, you accept that you are willing to do your part to keep the
campus safe and acknowledge that you may be required to complete your course work in an evolving or remote learning environment.

The Manchester Community College community is looking forward to welcoming you back.
ALLIED HEALTH
Certifed Nurse Aide (CNA)
This online/hybrid course will utilize both online instruction via Blackboard and virtual live lectures/
discussions using Zoom or Webex to prepare students to sit for the certifcation exam and work as a
Certifed Nurse Aide (CNA) in long-term care facilities, hospitals, clinics and home health agencies. A CNA
may provide the following basic care to patients while under the direction of the nursing staff: bathe,
groom and dress patients; serve meals and assist patients with eating; assist patients with walking and
transfer them to beds, wheelchairs, and exam tables; observe patients’ conditions, record food/liquid
intake and output and take vital signs; answer patients’ call signals; turn or reposition patients who are
confned to bed; provide and empty bedpans; change bed sheets and restock rooms with necessary
supplies.

Clinical Rotation Hours: Clinical hours will be completed when sites reopen from the pandemic. The
reduced requirement approved by the Department of Public Health is 16 hours. To participate in clinical
rotation hours, state regulations require that all students must frst pass a background check through
MCC’s provider, Castle Branch (approximately a $72 fee), show documentation of a current physical exam,
show documentation of up-to-date vaccinations. Students who fail to meet these requirements will not be
allowed to participate in clinical rotation hours and are not eligible to pass the course.

Background Check: Instructions on how to complete the required criminal background check will be
emailed to students in a welcome packet after they register for the course. It is advised that students
complete the background check as soon as possible since it may take up to two weeks to receive the
results. Any criminal charge or pending charge will fag as failure of the screening and students will not
be allowed to continue in the course or attend clinicals. Course refunds will NOT be granted due to failure
of the criminal background check, unless a refund request is emailed to the Allied Health Coordinator
(Ldoonan@manchestercc.edu) prior to the last business day before the frst meeting of class. Do not
register for this course if you think you will not pass a background check.

Connecticut State Certifed Nursing Aide Exam: The cost of the exam is approximately $118 and is not
included in this course fee. The instructor will provide students with the information needed to apply for
the exam. To sit for the exam, students must complete all course assignments, quizzes and exams (online
via Blackboard), participate in all Zoom or Webex live lectures (2 hours per week), complete clinical hour
as required by the CT DPH once sites reopen (currently the requirement is 16 hours) and achieve a passing
grade of 70 or above.

Supplies: Students should purchase a watch with a second hand. All other course materials will be
provided in Blackboard. A suggested reference material is Carter’s Lippincott Textbook for Nursing
Assistants, 5th edition (ISBN: 9781975108502) and workbook (ISBN: 9781975108540).
