CERTIFIED NURSE AIDE (CNA) TRAINING PROGRAM
CNA's are in demand - if you have a passion for people and a desire to help them, then this may be the opportunity you have been looking for. The Certified Nurse Aide Training Program is a state mandated curriculum that requires 30 classroom hours and 75 hours of clinical instruction in a long-term care facility. Successful completion allows the student to take the state certification exam which leads to the CNA certificate. Students also gain knowledge in anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, and human behavior, as well as direct patient care skills. Class size is small to provide quality instruction and individual attention. 100% attendance is required.
Registration in person required. Information about the program is detailed below. When you are ready to take the English/Math competency evaluation and/or register with payment, please call us at 260.467.1075 to schedule an appointment!
The program is in two parts:
30 hours of classroom instruction at Anthis Career Center, followed by 75 hours of clinical instruction at a long-term care facility. The certification test will be scheduled within one month of completion of clinical training. Class fee: $800 includes CPR training and certification. Some program requirements entail additional cost to the student, including final certification test fee ($75), Indiana State criminal history check, tuberculosis test/readings, and general physical examination. Details provided at registration. Approximate additional required out of pocket cost to student: $100-$150.
