Certified Nurse Aides play a vital role in healthcare delivery by providing routine patient care. Working under the supervision of a nurse, CNAs report vital patient information including temperatures, pulses, and blood pressures. CNAs have direct patient contact assisting with daily activities, such as, bathing, walking, and eating. The Certified Nurse Aide training program consists of lectures, skills development, and clinical training. Learn the proper way to perform nurse aide procedures essential to meet the needs of patients under your care.This program is approved by the State Department of Public Health. This program is eligible for WIA funding -contact CT Works early to inquire.
