Nursing Assistant Certified

Assist patients with compassion and care

Are you a compassionate person who enjoys interacting with others as part of their career? If so, then becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant might be perfect for you. As a CNA, you'll have the necessary skills and knowledge to provide care to those who are unable to care for themselves. This Department of Health-approved course emphasizes safety. Our students learn patient care techniques, measures of well-being, and how to work as an integral part of a healthcare team. As a student, you are tested on your understanding of skills and safety through written examination and skill demonstrations before your clinical experience with geriatric population clients.
