As a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), you will offer patients compassion and patience while assisting them with day-to-day life tasks such as dressing, bathing and feeding. Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) enjoy solid job security and frequently work a flexible schedule. Typical work environments include long-term care facilities, hospitals, clinics and in the home.
While in school, you will be instructed on a broad range of subjects, including infection control, communication and interpersonal skills, safety and emergency procedures, personal care skills, psychosocial needs, basic restorative services and skills, basic nursing skills, quality improvement and more. The Perry Foundation Academy of Health’s CNA program is 96 hours and takes four weeks to complete, preparing you to take the Nevada State Board of Nursing exam.
Enrollment into the program is subject to the approval by the Academic Director once all prerequisites have been met, an interview has been conducted, and the required deposit has been made.
