About CNA Training Classes


The certified nursing assistant (CNA) is the quickest professional nursing designation that one can earn. The federal minimum number of training hours required to become a CNA is 75, which can be completed within 6-12 weeks. Training courses for CNAs are also amongst the most readily available professional nursing programs around. Colleges, universities, trade schools, vocational schools, nursing homes, hospitals, assisted living facilities and long term care centers are all capable of offering qualified CNA training programs. This does not mean that every institution or facility will have a CNA program, but there are usually many to choose from in each state. A qualified CNA training program will prepare the student to pass the CNA certification exam which consists of two parts, a hands-on clinical portion and a written multiple choice portion.

The nursing assistant position provides the individual with an excellent overview of the healthcare field and gives them a hands-on learning experience from the ground up. Many nurse aides go on to become registered nurses, doctors, chiropractors or other types of health care professionals. Seeing the environment through the eyes of a CNA can provide great insight into the inner workings of a health care setting.
