Adult Nursing Assistant Student
Nursing Assistants enjoy solid job security and frequently work a flexible schedule working in long-term care facilities, hospitals, clinics, and in the home. Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) also support doctors and nurses in direct patient care, diagnostic procedures and patient care treatments.

The curriculum includes a broad range of subjects, including, but not limited to, infection control, communication and interpersonal skills, safety and emergency procedures, personal care skills, and basic nursing skills. Direct patient care training & instruction is facilitated in the classroom, lab and clinical settings.

At the end of the course, students are prepared to take the Arizona Board of Nursing Certified Nursing Assistant Examination.
