Our Certified CNA Training Curriculum

The clinical section of the CNA Certification course is two weeks long, with the option to attend early or late classes. In this program, students have the opportunity to work under the direction of a Nurse in an area facility and provide hands-on patient care.

We are affiliated with six facilities for clinical instruction. Furthermore, each class rotates through at least 2 facilities so that our students are exposed to a variety of caregiving experiences.

This exposure makes our students sought-after immediately after graduation and throughout their medical career.
