Program Overview

In just a few short weeks you can start your career as a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA).

Nursing homes, hospitals, adult day care centers, personal homes, and assisted living facilities all require nursing aides to act as a helpful liaison between the RN or LPN and the patient. A CNA’s workload can become intense and fast-paced, but the ability to help those in medical need is a strong, motivating factor.

Nursing skills are taught in the nursing laboratory, with clinical experiences provided in area nursing homes and hospitals. Students must provide TB skin test results from within the past 12 months and a new OSBI check. Students must also complete the Accuplacer test.
