CNA Training Programs

The NTSOC CNA School is currently not accepting new applications and has temporarily suspended enrollment for new students. Please check this site periodically to receive updated information.

Would you want to take care of a loved one – perhaps a child, a grandchild, or a sibling – at home? Are you 16 years or older and would like to have a profession that pays well? If you answered yes to any of these questions, consider becoming a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) at NTSOC’s State Nursing Board’s approved program.

CNA Skills Lab

Our CNA program has a well–equipped CNA skills lab that provides a positive learning environment for CNA students to train (on mannequins as well as classmates) before caring for actual patients. The lab is registered as a local and regional CNA testing center for the Colorado State Board of Nursing, which allows our CNA training program graduates to test in the facility in which they trained.
