The CNA program prepares the individual to assist in providing care to patients at hospitals, long-term care facilities, physicians’ offices, home health and at home.  Participants receive four to eight weeks of training that include classroom time and clinical practices. Lessons include but are not limited to resident’s rights, preventing and controlling infection, weighing and measuring, vital signs, safety and emergency procedures, nutrition, managing information, and dealing with death and dying. Once the program is completed students are prepared to take the National Nurse Aide Assessment for certification.
