Healthcare Aides & Assistants

Learn from experienced registered nurses
If you are interested in helping others, are a hard worker and enjoy encouraging that “satisfied” smile from someone in need, then working as a CNA (certified nursing assistant) may be for you. The CNA has the privilege of meeting the basic needs of our citizens who need it most. This satisfying profession can be a prerequisite for the nursing program or a stand-alone opportunity.



The nursing assistant program is offered at several locations, with opportunities for clinical practice in area long-term care facilities.

Other nursing assistant classes are available to increase the student’s knowledge and marketability.

  • The HHA (home health aide) class instructs the CNA how to help elderly, convalescent, or disabled persons live in their own homes instead of in a health care facility.
  • The RA (restorative aide) class trains the CNA to assist therapy departments in long-term and acute care facilities and to carry out rehabilitative care plans in the client’s home.
  • The CMA (certified medication aide) class allows the CNA student to pass medications and treatments to long-term care residents.
