CNA Training Programs

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, then consider becoming a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) at NTSOC’s State Nursing Board’s approved program.

Place your future in trusted hands.

Highlights of our program include:

  • 60 hours classroom and lab training
  • 20 hours of supervised clinical experience
  • In-facility and regional certification testing site
  • Day and evening classes
  • Accepting students age 16+

CNAs give our loved ones essential care and emotional support. Since CNAs see their patients every day, they are a vital link in providing updates to doctors and nurses. CNAs are trained to perform personal care activities such as bathing, hair care, oral hygiene and assisting with dressing. They can facilitate simple exercises and transfers. Our CNAs also help with therapy programs when instructed. Our instructors stress the importance of providing your loved ones with care and empathy.

While carefully monitoring the health of your loved one, our CNAs are trained to report any changes in condition. Also, while working closely with families, they provide emotional support and offer extra avenues to socialization during home visits.

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.
