The website www.4cnas.com will give you a list of schools that offer CNA training programs so you can have a look at what’s on offer and see what is best for you. You could also contact the state registry for a list of all the accredited CNA training programs in your area, you’ll find the contact details for them on this website, too.

The majority of CNA courses available are similar in what they cover and how they are run. Typically, you will be expected to undergo 75 hours of class time, although some of this may be possible to complete online. If this is the case, you will need access to a computer and reliable Internet.

The subjects covered and the skills you will be expected to acquire will include the fundamentals of patient care. You will need to learn how to care for patients and the methods that are in place to make sure that it is done properly.

It may seem like common sense, but respect for the patient is also taught. This is actually vital, because too many carers seem to forget that they are actually looking after a person rather than just an entity with feelings or dignity.

Basic first aid and CPR are also taught, as is nutrition and the feeding of patients. Again, common sense but vital, many patients unable to fend for themselves are, all too often, left with food and drink just out of their reach with no thought given to how they are supposed to get them, resulting in malnutrition and dehydration, not to mention suffering.

The hygienic management of bodily fluids is taught, as well as medical terminology, so that nursing assistants can communicate with nurses and doctors, and finally, charting is covered so that you will be able to make accurate patient records.
