Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)

Approved by New York State Education Department (NYSED)

This 130-hour program is approved by New York State and provides both classroom instruction and a 30-hour clinical internship. Coursework includes anatomy and physiology, basic life support, and fundamentals of patient care. During the final six weeks of class, students are assigned to a clinical externship in a nursing home.

CNAs work under the supervision of a registered nurse (RN), licensed practical nurse (LPN), physician assistant (PA), nurse practitioner (NP), or medical doctor or other supervisory staff in a health care facility. Students will learn how to assist patients with daily living tasks, provide basic care services such as bed making, grooming, and taking vital signs.
