Overview :

WHAT IS A CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANT?

A Certified Nursing Assistant, or CNA, is an important member of the care team.  They often spend the most time with clients and patients than any other role, even doctors and nurses.  It is an incredibly rewarding and an excellent starting point in a healthcare career path.
 
A Certified Nursing Assistant, or CNA, provides hands-on healthcare to patients, assisting them with basic activities like bathing, dressing, and many other activities we often take for granted. Essentially, they help people with a limited ability to care for themselves complete daily tasks with ease. They provide intimate care that really makes a difference to the people who depend on them, whether their patients are elderly, disabled, injured, ill, or otherwise infirm.

WHAT IS OUR CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANT TRAINING COURSE ABOUT?

Regan Career Institute offers accredited nurse assistant training which is approved by the California Department of Public Health. Upon satisfactory completion of the course, each graduate will receive a certificate of eligibility so they can take the State Competency Test through the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program (NNAAP) / American Red Cross. This exam will test both your book knowledge and practical skills learned during training. All nurse assistant students must pass this state certification exam before they can become certified nursing assistants.  View the current medical course schedule now!

Some clinics will hire untrained and inexperienced workers and provide on-the-job training, but these opportunities may be hard to find and may not be ideal for many reasons. RCI offers training within medical facilities as part of our unique clinical program. Becoming a CNA is often seen as a stepping stone to becoming an RN or LVN. This natural transition in this medical profession often results in many job openings in entry-level positions.
