Where To Get CNA Training

By Adrianna • Education, State of Healthcare • 12 Aug 2013

Certified Nursing Assistant positions are available across the United States and for job seekers interested in positioning themselves for these positions have a few options for training. First off, what doe a CNA do exactly? Let’s walk through it.

CNAs work as assistants to nurses and generally work in nursing homes, hospitals and clinics. CNAs generally report to a licensed nurse and provide basic care to patients. This can include general assistance as far as personal care and day to day activities. Not surprisingly, with an increasingly aged population in the United States, these positions will increase in demand for the foreseeable future.

So where can you get trained for one of these positions?

Most community colleges will offer courses for CNA training. This can be a convenient option if you live in an area with easy access to a community college. These are typically quality programs where students can get attentive instruction from certified nurses.

If you don’t live in an area where a community college is available, online courses are also an option. These are also inexpensive, but for someone moving into this career it may not provide the level of attention a career switcher would want.

There are plenty of free CNA training resources online to learn more about what it takes to land a position as a Certified Nursing Assistant.
