Nursing CNA: Certified Nursing Assistant

Nursing CNA
Certified Nursing Assistant

Increase your earning potential in only 8 weeks through the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Program at Chaffey College. As a CNA you will assist ill or recovering patients with their healthcare needs. The registered nurse or licensed practical nurse assigns duties to the CNA depending on the needs of the patient. These duties can be providing basic care or assisting in daily activities patients have trouble with, such as bathing, grooming, and toileting. CNAs often work in a wide variety of settings; nursing homes, hospitals, adult day care centers, personal homes, assisted living facilities and more than 30 other facility types.

Programs are approved by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), therefore it is required to take and pass the state testing at the completion of the 8 week program. Chaffey College offers on site testing by a state approved testing agency, for a fee.
