Hybrid Certified Nurse Assistant Program Now Enrolling at East Central College
The East Central College Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) Program is teaming up with the Center for Workforce Development to offer a hybrid Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) program in March. This program is designed to prepare individuals to care for clients in long-term care facilities, hospitals and home health agencies.
“Certified Nurse Assistants are vital to healthcare,” said East Central College instructor Terri Warmack. “It’s a rewarding, exciting and challenging career where you can make a difference every day.”
The course consists of 75 hours classroom training and 100 hours of supervised clinical training. It also includes 100 hours preparation for the high school equivalency or college placement exams.
Upon completion of all components, students will be eligible to take the final exam to become a Certified Nurse Assistant through the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.
