Nurse Assistant


CNAs are compassionate people who love helping and supporting their patients through difficult and sometimes painful procedures. CNAs must be team players, serving as liaisons between other medical professionals and their patients. This often involves recording and conveying important information concerning the condition of those under their care.

CNAs are found in nearly every healthcare field, serving in hospitals, long-term care facilities, rehabilitation centers, and hospices. They help patients with daily activities, maintaining patient hygiene and serving a vital role in the healthcare team.

Once you have completed the Nurse Assistant training program, you will be prepared to sit for the National licensure exam. You must pass the National Certification exam to be certified by the State of California Department of Public Health after meeting specific requirements.
