Certified Nursing Assistant

Program Description

The Certified Nursing Assistant (hereby referred to as CNA) program is designed to prepare our students to confidently address the responsibilities of a professional CNA. Our CNA Program consists of a 9-unit module program that consists of 45.5 hours of lecture, 28.5 hours of lab and 34 hours of clinical experiences. The content is delivered in multiple formats including: lecture, class discussion, audiovisual material, independent assignments, hands on demonstrations, and student participation. Students will learn basic concepts of nurse aide care, including but not limited to; areas such as anatomy, nutritional care, and disease management. Clinical will be held at an approved long-term care facility, providing students the opportunity to interact with nursing home residents and staff members in multiple capacities. After successful completion of the program, each student will have met the requirements to be eligible to take the state CNA certification exam administered by Prometric. Students must attend all sessions of clinical, lab and lecture to be eligible for program completion and to sit for the Connecticut CNA exam administered by Prometric.
