Course Description: This 16-week course is designed to prepare students to become Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), focusing on providing quality care in various healthcare settings. 

In this course students will learn through a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on experience. The curriculum covers essential nursing skills, understanding patient rights, effective communication, safety procedures, and the importance of patient privacy and dignity. Upon completion, students will be prepared to take the Florida CNA Certification Exam.

Expect to dive deep into the core aspects of nursing assistance, from infection control and personal hygiene to mobility assistance and care for individuals with specific needs. This course is not just about passing an exam; it's about shaping you into a competent, compassionate healthcare professional who can make a real difference in patients' lives.

Course Objectives: In this course, students will be able to understand and implement:

  • Understand and apply the basic principles of patient care.

  • Demonstrate proficiency in the 22 CNA skills as outlined by the Florida Board of Nursing.

  • Communicate effectively with patients, families, and healthcare team members.

  • Maintain a safe environment for patients and coworkers.

  • Respect patient rights and promote patient independence.

  • Prepare for the Florida CNA Certification Exam.

Grade Level: This course is for high-school seniors & adults. By law, a CNA must either be a high school graduate (16 years old & up) or at least 18 years of age. It is thus recommended the student be near either one of these requirements before taking this course.

Though this is not required for the course, students should be aware that, in order to become a licensed CNA, they are required to obtain a Level 2 Background Check ($50) and pay for & pass the licensing written and practical exam from prometric ($140). Students should take these steps after successfully completing this course.
