CNA Students in Action
A certified nursing assistant (CNA), also known as a nurse aide, takes care of patients' basic needs, including bathing and feeding, and provides support to other medical professionals.
Certified nursing assistant courses are typically offered through short-term, state-approved programs that may lead to a certificate. Our CNA course includes a combination of lectures and laboratory practice. After completing their courses, students complete supervised clinical work through an externship at a long-term medical care facility. Graduates have to pass their state competency exam to get the title of CNA.
Here is a list of the concepts learned in the CNA course:
- Activities of daily living (ADLs)
- Vital Signs
- Incident reporting
- Patient rights
- Long-term care
