Nursing assistant programs prepare individuals for challenging the nurse aide certification exam and for entry level positions in health care environments. Each state has the authority to decide how many hours of training a nursing assistant course must consist of, as long as the minimum federal requirement of seventy-five hours is met. Students interested in attending CNA classes have a wide array of choices when it comes to selecting a training facility.
Nursing assistant courses are conducted at nursing homes, vocational schools, private schools, and community colleges. Program length, admission requirements, and cost of training vary depending on the policies of every training facility. Several states have implemented legislation which requires licensed long-term care facilities to reimburse CNA employees for the costs associated with training. An individual who has paid for nursing assistant training classes and who becomes employed by a nursing home within a year of obtaining certification, is eligible for financial reimbursement. Compared to other training programs in the health care field, nursing assistant classes are relatively short and inexpensive. Obtaining state certification as a CNA is the main requirement for securing a nurse aide job at a nursing home, hospital, rehabilitation or skilled nursing facility.

Message: I am looking for CNA classes in the Dover area, and the cost of the class.

Message: There are only three CNA programs I know about in Dover, Delaware and they are all listed on this page. The program at Always Care Health Services, Inc. seems to offer some discounts but you need to contact them to see if you qualify. Courtland Manor lists an open CNA position but it seems to require prior certification and I was unable to find more information about the Silver Lake Center program. I would suggest that you contact these facilities and inquire if they are offering CNA training at this time. Unlike private schools and community colleges, nursing homes do not offer CNA training programs all the time. In general, you might pay less if you can find a training program at a nursing home but they are usually only offered when they need additional staff. Good luck!

How long do CNA classes take and what exactly do you have to do?
Admin on July 19, 2014 at 10:51 PM
Nursing assistant training courses may take anywhere between three weeks to three months to complete, depending on the facility or school which offers the program. To enroll in nurse aide classes you must meet certain admission criteria pertaining to education, health, and background history. Those who are accepted into CNA classes must complete both the classroom and hands-on practice sessions to graduate. Finally, one must pass a final exam which tests a candidate's skills and abilities to practice correctly and safely. When you pass this final test you become a certified nurse aide.
