Technical Standards

Technical Standards are defined by the Owens Community College Nurse Assistant Faculty as the functional abilities determined to be essential for the State Tested Nurse Assistant.

The purpose of this document is to notify prospective STNA students of these technical standards to enable them to make an informed decision regarding enrollment in the STNA program at Owens Community College.

The delivery of safe, effective care requires that students be able to perform functions related to the Technical Standards. The inability of a student to perform these functions may result in the student being unable to meet course objectives. Additionally if a student is unable to perform these required functions, the student may pose a risk of harm to the patient(s) for whom care is provided.

If you have a disability or acquire one, you may be entitled to receive individualized services and/or accommodations intended to assure you an equal opportunity to participate in and benefit from the program. To receive more information or to apply for services, please contact the Office of Disability Services in Alumni Hall 103 at (567) 661-7007 or email disability@owens.edu. English as a second language is not considered a disability and as such the student will not be given extra time for any timed activities.

All prospective and current STNA students must be able to meet these standards, with or without reasonable accommodations.
