CNA Program

Course Description
Nursing is a challenging occupation in an ever changing healthcare environment. Communication, and Patient and Family relations are strong components of this occupation. Students learn the importance of Infection Control and Safety, Anatomy and Physiology (including Circulatory, Musculoskeletal, and Nervous Systems), and much more. Students complete hands-on practical skills in the laboratory, which include taking vital signs, CPR, bed making, bathing and grooming, caring for surgical patients, and various health care procedures. Students enrolled in the CNA program will complete clinical hours at the VA putting their skills to the test. Students that complete the coursework and their clinical hours will be able to take the state exam at the end of the year and graduate with their CNA license.

*Pre-CNA program offers all the same course content but does not contain clinical hours or the ability to take the state exam.
