Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA), provide important care to patients under the supervision of nurses and other licensed medical professionals. Professionals in this field often have more direct contact with patients than any other member of the healthcare team.

The Nursing Assistant Training Program provides the real world skills and training it takes to become a qualified healthcare professional, in less than 2 months. Graduates of this program are prepared to work in long care healthcare facilities (nursing homes) as well as home health care.

Looking to Make a Change Quickly?

The short, 6-week training time makes this program a great option for individuals eager to make a quick career change. After gaining experiences, some CNAs choose to move into specialized areas of medicine such as labor and delivery, pediatrics or geriatrics.
