Nurse Assistant: Long-Term Care (CNA Preparation)

The Nurse Assistant, Long-Term Care Program is designed to prepare students for a career in nursing. Students learn about basic nursing care, emergency procedures, communication, and how to work effectively as a member of a health care team.

In order to participate in clinical experience and to qualify for the National Nurse Aid Assessment Program (NNAAP) examination, students must do the following:  have a passing grade; possess and present a valid, government-issued photo ID and Social Security card; have a negative TB test and physical exam; complete CPR training; and have a clear fingerprint/background check.    

Students must successfully complete a minimum of 60 hours of classroom instruction and a minimum of 100 hours of clinical experience and pass the NNAAP CNA examination which is approximately $100 for the written and manual skills portions (retakes are an additional charge). A passing score on this exam is required for state certification.

This course requires students to perform certain activities that involve considerable standing, heavy lifting (50 lbs.), as well as repetitive hand and arm motions that may cause or exacerbate any pre-existing auto-immune, muscular, joint, cardiovascular, neurological and/or orthopedic conditions.

Students who successfully complete this course may sit for the NNAAP CNA Examination. Additional fee will apply.
