The Certified Nurse Assistants (CNA) are an important part of the health care team directly involved with “hands-on” patient care of the sick and elderly. The Nurse Assistant program prepares students to become certified so they can find employment in hospitals, long-term care facilities, in-home care, physical therapy, hospice and doctors’ offices. In this program, students learn how to provide and demonstrate personal care, record vital signs, measure height and weight, and restorative services. They care for cognitively impaired residents, work with mental health issues, and are trained in CPR.
Students have the option of enrolling in the open daytime sessions which begin weekly or the lock-step evening sessions which begin on the dates specified.
