The objective of Mentee Medical Institute's Certified Nurse Assistant Program is to prepare students with the knowledge, skills and abilities essential for the provision of basic care to residents and patients in health care settings. The program consists of various units of instruction, laboratory experience, lecture, and clinical externship. Upon satisfactory completion of training, students will be registered with the State of Georgia as a Certified Nurse Assistant, receive a CNA certificate and be qualified to assume entry level positions in a variety of health care settings. For more information about this certified nursing assistant program and enrollment requirements visit Mentee Medical Institute's Certified Nurse Assistant program page or call the number above.
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.

How do I sign up for CNA training? I am having trouble finding the shortest training program in my area. Can you help me?

To sign up for a certified nursing assistant program, you must contact the school and request an enrollment application. Some schools provide applications online, but others do not. You might have to visit the facility to pick up an application. A deposit is usually required to reserve your seat in the class. You must contact each program yourself to ask about the length and cost of their classes and decide which one is best for you. I could help you locate several CNA training classes in your area. Please provide me with state and county information if you need help locating nursing assistant courses close to where you live.
