Skill Level




A Certified Nursing Assistant, or CNA, is an important member of the care team.  They often spend the most time with patients than any other role, including doctors and nurses.  It is an incredibly rewarding and an excellent starting point towards a career in nursing or healthcare in general.

As a Certified Nursing Assistant, these certified allied health professionals provide hands-on medical care to patients by 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.

Certified Nursing Assistant Program


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 in the State of California.

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 not to mention may sometimes put patients safety at risk. 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.

What people are saying

"I just completed the CNA course at RCI and also just passed and recieved my license. The Regan Career Institute was great! The staff is very organized and knowledgable. I must say very helpful too, they seem to be on top of things at all times. I loved our instructor. She was really wonderful. She was not only there to teach us the materials but also definitely a good mentor. She was very compassionate, kind, understanding and positive. I really recommend this school. I just felt like the staff and management did a really good job in providing me with all the information I needed."
