Our class sizes are small. No more than 8 students (in compliance with COVID-19 regulations) in each class to ensure personal attention. We offer a multi-media experience including text book, computer-based, and video learning to provide our students with a high-quality learning environment. The skills lab provides our students with hands on work in a range of fields, from monitoring vital signs to learning the documentation skills needed to work confidently in any situation. We use a variety of live models and teaching aides to provide a well rounded experience. Our students benefit from 40 hours of supervised work in the field. At the facility, students work hands-on with patients under the supervision of an RN to ensure that concepts taught in our classrooms are tested in a real world environment. Our school is licensed by the State of Virginia for Nursing Assistant Program.
As Nursing Assistant (CNA), you would assist nursing personnel with a variety of patient care activities and related services necessary in caring for the patients. These include activities of daily living (ADL), monitoring and recording vital signs. If you have other concerns, please email us.
