Certified nurse assistant training programs prepare you to provide patients with basic care. Classroom instruction and clinical experience enable you to obtain the necessary nursing skills and knowledge to provide personal care such as bathing, nutrition, elimination, safety and comfort to patients (typically at long-term care facilities such as nursing homes, mental health facilities, assisted living complexes and hospitals). Offered by high schools, vocation schools, health care facilities and community colleges, CNA programs typically take 6 to 12 weeks to complete. Federal law mandates certified nurse assistants complete at least 75 hours of training and pass a certification test.
