Overview

The Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) course prepares the student to provide hands on personal care in numerous settings, such as a hospital, long-term care, assisted living, home health or hospice. The course meets the Federal and Idaho State requirements for the training of CNAs. The class consists of 88 hours of classroom/lab and 32 hours of clinical experience led by an RN instructor. Upon successful completion of the course, the student is qualified to take the skills and written exam which will place them on the Idaho CNA registry. Opportunities abound for immediate employment and it is a great foundation for many other health care professions, such as nursing, radiology technologist and surgical technologist.
