A typical day 4 hours a day, a lot of going over what CNA. Book work and tests. What CNA do and what they can’t do in facilities and home side. What the test is going to be about. Training how to make beds, I and O change patients, how to clean dentures, weigh patients, how to turn patients, how to get patients from bed to wheel chair, use gait belts and more.

It was overall a great experience and I love my career and being able to help patients out when it matters most. Sometimes receiving a bill during a hard time can be stressful and me knowing and learning what I have I am able to help patients and take some worries away.

Pros

Flexible class hours, Good teachers

Cons

It was a cattle call, instead of a school.

Other comments

Wasn't a good decision, wouldn't suggest it. They are solely there to make money. No career support, nor does their accreditation stand up in the real world. It's basically a joke.

Teachers were awesome and so much hands on learning! There was always time to practice and receive constructive criticism. There was also an option to take the state board IN the classroom, which made for a very comfortable testing experience.

“Make sure to attend a program that is accredited. Research different programs to see what is most highly recommended. If you are intelligent and competitive, the course work won't be too hard. Just study and be responsible. Put everything into it that you can. Strive to be the best. Obtain the best certifications, as much knowledge, and as much experience as possible. If your school offers you an optional clinical or externship, take it! The more you accomplish, the more desirable you are to employers!”
