As a certified nursing assistant, or CNA, you'll help patients with daily living activities plus their healthcare needs, under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). All CNAs must attend a state-approved education program. You will train during Monroe's CNA program to gain laboratory plus field experience. Our clinical labs will allow you to learn necessary role-specific skills, practice patient care techniques and develop medical knowledge as necessary. Upon successful completion of the program, you'll be eligible to sit for the certification examination.
