Certified Nursing Assistant

About this course

COA’s NO-COST/Noncredit Certified Nursing Assistant program will prepare you for the state certification exam and will help establish skills for successful work in an inpatient hospital setting, but more commonly in long-term residential facilities, rehabilitation centers, and adult day care centers. Some individuals will use their knowledge as a CNA to bridge the gap to further their career and become an LPN or RN. A large number of CNAs are already in a nursing school program and use this career as a chance to learn more about the healthcare world and gain additional real world application and knowledge. Others become a CNA in order to determine if they want to continue to the next step in their healthcare journey. For the most up to date information, please visit
