Certified nurse aides are valuable members of the health care team who work in a variety of settings, including: hospitals, rehabilitation centers, clinics, skilled nursing facilities, home care, and many others. CNAs are qualified to perform many important functions for people in need, such as providing personal care and measuring vital signs under the supervision of registered nurses. This rewarding career can be a great way to earn money and work with people.
You will participate in classroom discussions and lectures, have a chance to try out new skills in a safe and comfortable environment in our simulated labs and then go on to gain experience in a clinical setting. Experienced registered nurse instructors will facilitate your learning in all areas. After successful completion of our 120- hour course you will be prepared to take the State of Connecticut Nurse Aide Competency Exam; given on site and included in the cost of the course.
You will learn about human anatomy, how to feed and bathe residents, safety when assisting someone to walk or use a wheelchair and how to care for patients of all ages and cultures and so much more. Some students find that working as a Certified Nurse Aide is just a start for their health care career and others find it a rewarding place to stay.
