St. Ann’s Community is pleased to provide training for Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) candidates. Consisting of a minimum of 75 hours of education, including classroom, lab, and clinical components, program participants will complete a computer-based test and a competency demonstration in order to receive official certification.

A CNA performs various tasks in their role. These include taking vital signs, providing or assisting with routine personal care, facilitation of basic needs being met, and observing and reporting changes in a resident’s condition or abilities. A CNA spends more time with residents than other members of the health care team and because of this, they become the “eyes and ears” of the team. A CNA must have strong interpersonal skills and must be a compassionate, caring individual who has a desire to build relationships with residents.
