Certified Nurse Aide Programs

The next WEEKDAY CNA class begins on 8/25.  The next WEEKEND CNA class begins on 10/11.  Call today.  Seats are limited.

CERTIFIED NURSE AIDES (CNA) work under the direction of other health care professionals, usually in nursing homes or hospitals. Their duties include taking the blood pressure, temperature, and pulse of patients. They help patients get in and out of bed, take baths, and dress. They also serve meals and perform housekeeping chores like making beds and cleaning rooms. Nursing assistants observe the patient’s physical, emotional, and mental status and report any changes to the medical or nursing staff.  Nursing assistants that are employed in nursing homes are often the principal caregivers. They often have more contact with residents than other members of the staff.  Since some residents may occupy a nursing home for months or even years, nurses aides often develop ongoing relationships with them and respond to them in a positive and caring manner.
