Course Detail: CNAF - Nurse Assistant (CNA) Training Program (Face-to-Face)

This training program consists of a combination of Nurse Assistant theory, lab and clinical instruction. Students attend this in-person training according to a predetermined schedule.

Each class allows time for intensive and individualized instruction from an experienced long-term care RN instructor. This training program is delivered in a 10-day face-to-face setting in which full attendance is required to successfully complete the program (see sample training program syllabus for a detailed schedule). Upon completion of the program, students will be scheduled to take the state certification exam consisting of both a written and skills test. After passing both portions of the state exam, the student earns the title "Certified Nurse Assistant".

Participants will complete two (2) 8-hour clinical days as part of the training. Clinical days are scheduled to occur the final two days of training, and are held from 6:00AM - 2:30PM at Eventide Heartland Care Center, Devils Lake, ND.

Students will be required to follow COVID-19 safety protocols during face-to-face lab and clinical sessions. For more details, contact TrainND at 701-662-1578.

Prerequisites: Please see the example syllabus in the Resources section below for important information regarding course prerequisites and other policies.  Students will be attending clinical at a long-term care facility and are required to submit Mantoux test, or Tuberculosis testing, results to TrainND by August 5, 2021.

Due to COVID-19, our clinical facility will have special requirements students will need to abide by in order to participate in clinical instruction at their facility.  Students will be required to complete a health and vaccination survey, as well as be willing to complete COVID testing as required by the long-term care facility, prior to attending clinical.  Specific details will be shared with students during the course.

Students who do not provide the required Tuberculosis testing or who do not meet COVID testing and/or health screening requirements at the time of clinical will not be allowed to complete the clinical portion of the course, and will therefore not successfully complete the training program.

Cost includes books, training materials, laboratory fees, instruction from an experienced Registered Nurse instructor, and your first attempt at the state CNA exam. The state test date is scheduled for August 13, 2021.
