Certified Nurse Aide (CNA)
Certified Nurse Aides play vital roles in healthcare delivery by providing routine patient care. Working under the supervision of a nurse, CNAs report important patient information including temperature, pulse, and blood pressure. 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 nursing procedures essential to meet the needs of patients under your care. This program is approved by the state Department of Public Health.
Note: Convicted felons may have difficulty finding employment in the healthcare industry.
