The CNA course is a one-year program available to juniors and seniors interested in a career in the health field. Students receive 350 hours of academic preparation including classroom material and supporting lab practice. Instruction in all human body systems is designed for an understanding of each system and its relationship to the healthy or diseased body. Students will participate in a supervised clinical experience in local health care and extended living facilities. Students are required to apply their classroom lessons in completing actual patient assignments. Students are co­-assigned with professional staff providing valuable assistance while they learn. The program also provides training and/or observation in hospital departments specific to each student’s interest.
