CNA School

A CNA is a certified nursing assistant. Certified nursing assistance assists in helping nurses care for residents and patients in skilled nursing, long-term care, within hospitals, and in the home with home health. Certified nursing assistance provides dignified, competent care to these residents. Being a CNA is the most rewarding career you can have as you get to help people, bond with them, and bring your caring hands into the lives of those who need it.

What we offer

Our CNA School Programs

We want you to be able to learn but also fit school into your busy life. That’s why we offer a part-time experience. It allows students to continue to work and continue to have a life and time for the information to really sink in, so you are the most prepared once you graduate to begin a career as a Certified Nursing Assistant.

Eight-Week/Part-time Program

Our program has evening classes on Wednesdays and Thursdays (from 4 pm – 8 pm) and Saturday and Sunday (from 8:30 am – 4 pm *includes 30-minute lunch break). Once clinicals start, the school will be on Saturday and Sunday from 6:30 am – 2:30 pm (this aligns with our clinical site, so you get the most out of your clinical, hands-on experience)

Bundle Option

Complete our CNA program and have the option to complete our Home Health Aide class immediately after for a special discounted price of $2500 ALL INCLUSIVE! Click here for more information on our Home Health Aide program.


Students will read from the provided book, learn through lectures and videos about the skills you need to be a CNA. There will be quizzes that prepare you for your final exam and ultimately, the certification exam. We teach you to know your theory and skills, so you feel confident every step of the way to be the best CNA possible and to pass the certification test!

Skills Lab

Our state-of-the-art skills lab offers a real-life skilled nursing room that feels right inside our school. With all the equipment you will see in your patient’s room in real-life, we teach you in the up-to-date lab where you will get ample time to practice what you have learned in the theory portion of the course.


Did we mention both Emily and Kiran work in Skilled Nursing settings? Why is that a good thing? Because they know exactly what they are doing in this setting. Clinicals are the students' hands-on experience with real residents and patients. You will be paired with competent and experienced CNAs to work alongside them and learn from them. The information you have learned in theory and in the skills lab will be put into practice. And don’t be nervous! It will be a great, fun learning experience that we will be there for right alongside you!
