If you’re looking for a starter career path in the medical field, there’s no better way to do it than going through a 3 week CNA training program at the CNA Training Institute. Apart from being able to start working within a month or less of achieving your CNA certification, we thought this article was an interesting find on how a new college student is applying her CNA training education as taken from the Spencer Daily Reporter publication:
Spencer High School junior Chloe Johnson is taking her first steps to becoming an anesthesiologist while she is still in high school by getting her certified nursing assistant training.
“With my CNA training, I am planning on working in a nursing home through college,” Johnson said. “I would like to go further into the medical industry. This is my first medical experience. I have also taken Mrs. Reiman’s other college courses.”
The CNA training is offered through a joint effort by SHS and Iowa Lakes Community College. The program is just one of many classes students can receive college credit for while still in high school in the medical field.
“To receive a CNA certification, my students have to do 75 hours total of class time; 30 hours are in the classroom, 15 hours are in a lab and 30 hours working in a nursing home,” SHS health science instructor Lisa Reiman said. “We go to St. Luke Lutheran Home and they work directly with residents. St. Luke is really good to us. Their staff is so helpful and they are wonderful. It works really, really well.”
Now that is a really creative way to further your career. At the CNA Training Institute, we can help you become CNA Certified and if you’re interested in furthering your education, acquiring a job as a professional CNA after getting certified can definitely not only help you pay for further education in the medical field, but also provide you with actual working experience that will look great on your resume for your future career in advance healthcare!
CNA Training is definitely high in demand not only in the city of Houston, its in demand everywhere as noted in The Daily Sentinel Publication:
The growing need for certified nursing assistants in the Grand Valley is leading the area’s training sites to add class sessions in hopes of readying more assistants to fill the gaps.
Larchwood Inns, Western Colorado Community College and Western Colorado Area Health Education Center have all stepped up to try to train more CNAs by adding classes to what have already been available.
“It’s just always been a need,” said Georgia Hoaglund, executive director of the health education center.
