The CNA training program will be a fully-online (+ clinical experience), self-paced learning experience that meets federal and state regulations and prepares learners for the CNA licensing exam in the state of their choice.
Our training program prepares a CNA to:
- Communicate effectively with patients, family and staff
- Demonstrate basic nursing skills while caring for patients
- Establish and maintain a safe and pleasant environment
- Follow the nursing care plan in providing care
- Give simple emotional and psychological support to the patient and family members
- Identify the organization of the health care institution and its function
- Record observations and maintain records specific to the long-term facility and/or healthcare system or home health agency
- Report observations related to the patient's condition to an immediate supervisor
The federal government regulates CNA training by providing a required core curriculum, or topics that must be covered and assessed. The curriculum is divided into two parts: topics that must be covered before students come into direct contact with clients and topics that can be learned in conjunction with clinical training.
