What is a Certified Nurse Assistant?

A Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) works under the supervision of a Registered Nurse, LPN, Physician Assistant, Nurse Practitioner, Medical Doctor or other supervisory staff. A CNA provides assistance to patients with daily living tasks and is responsible for basic care services such as bed making, grooming and vital signs. A CNA may also assist doctors and nurses with medical procedures.

What does the CNA Training Course entail?

Approved by California Department of Public Health, Critical Care Training Center offers a two-part Certified Nurse Assistant training program.

Part I:
The first part of our CNA training takes place in the classroom. Students will learn all aspects of patient care through lectures, audio/video and practical demonstrations.

Part II:
Upon completion of the classroom training, students will begin clinical training (externship). During clinical training, students will work directly with patients in a health care facility in the Los Angeles area. A Nurse who is both a staff member of our school and licensed by California Board of Registered Nursing as a Primary Nurse Assistant Instructor supervises students. Each Registered Nurse Instructor will never have more than 15 students, assuring they can provide personalized instruction. During your externship, you will work side by side with other CNAs, nurses and medical professionals.

What does the California State certification exam entail?

When you complete your clinical training, you will take the California certification exam. The exam is administered by an independent testing organization authorized by the State of California and is given in two parts. The first part is a multiple-choice examination.
