About Doctor's Choice Career Academy

Philosophy
The philosophy and Mission of Doctor’s Choice Career Academy is to provide quality training that is in compliance with all government standards, rules and regulations.  To ensure that each student is provided with the tools to enable them to become a Certified Nursing Assistant. 

Vision Our Vision is to become number one in providing and producing the Best trained nursing assistants. We aim not only to train but to place our Nursing Assistant’s in nursing homes, and other long term care settings.

It’s important that students recognize that nursing assistants are key players in the lives of people in their care.  Each day, more than 2.5 million caregivers provide hands-on-care to our nations frail, elderly, or chronically challenged citizens in nursing homes and other long-term care settings.  And the number is growing as an additional 700,000 new positions will need to be filled in the next 25 years.
These important workers have various titles including: Nursing Assistants, Direct Care Workers, Care Assistants, Home Care Assistants, Caregivers, Hospice Assistants, Geriatric Aide/Assistants, Resident Assistants, Personal Care Assistants, Restorative Aides, Patient Care Assistants and others in nursing homes, home care, hospice, LTC hospitals, prisons, MR Facilities, Workshops and other long term care settings.

Nursing Assistants provide as much as 80-90% of the direct care received by residents and clients in long term care facilities.
Because they “stay” in care giving positions, Career Nursing Assistants provide predictability and stability to care.  This in turn enhances the feeling of security for our aging, frail, or physically challenged citizens.  The following findings are from the “Stayers Studies” (funded by the Administration on Aging, National Institute on Aging, 1997-98):

  • 28% stay 5 or more years in positions as nursing assistants
  • 12.6% stay 10-55 or more years
  • Stayers maintain positive relationships with residents
  • Stayers value job security and peer relationships
  • Stayers are considered to be health care experts in their own families
  • The majority of Stayers had positive experiences with an older person early in life and this factor contributed to their decision to become a nursing assistants.
