Our new CNA Online program provides an option for students who wish to take advantage of distance learning opportunities. This program is offered in a hybrid format which includes online modules and on-ground clinical learning. Students complete 6 weekly modules of nursing theory that cover all of the same material as our on-ground CNA courses. Students also complete skills training in our nursing lab and clinical training at a local nursing facility. CNA online classes are supported by the Blackboard Learn course management system.
This program is approved by the State Department of Public Health. Note: Convicted felons may have difficulty finding employment in the healthcare industry.
