Our new CNA Hybrid Online program provides an option for students who wish to take advantage of distance learning opportunities. This program is offered in a hybrid format and includes online modules with in-person clinical learning. Students complete six modules of nursing theory that cover all of the same material as our in-class 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 Connecticut Department of Public Health. Note: Convicted felons may have difficulty finding employment in the healthcare industry.
