Nurse Aide Training (CNA)

The Nurse Aide Training course will provide the skills needed to work as a nurse aide.  Upon completion of this course, students are eligible to take the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program Examination.  Certification as a nurse aide allows students to gain entry-level employment in a variety of healthcare work environments including hospitals, nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, home health agencies, and rehabilitation facilities.
 
Students will complete 80 hours of a combination of classroom and laboratory instruction.  If successful in the classroom, students will then proceed to 48 hours of clinical instruction at a state-approved long-term care facility.  Students must successfully complete both classroom and clinical portions to be eligible to take the exam.
