If you love helping others, working hard and seeing that bright smile on a patient’s face, you may want to consider a career as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). A CNA is responsible for meeting the basic needs of our most vulnerable people. This rewarding job can also be a step towards a future nursing career.


The nursing assistant program is offered at several locations, with opportunities for clinical practice in area long-term care facilities.

Other nursing assistant classes are available to increase the student’s knowledge and marketability.

  • The HHA (home health aide) class instructs the CNA how to help elderly, convalescent, or disabled persons live in their own homes instead of in a health care facility.
  • The RA (restorative aide) class trains the CNA to assist therapy departments in long-term and acute care facilities and to carry out rehabilitative care plans in the client’s home.
  • The CMA (certified medication aide) class allows the CNA student to pass medications and treatments to long-term care residents.
