The Entry Level Nurse Aide Program offers comprehensive CNA training to individuals aspiring to kick-start a career in healthcare. The program, held at the Germantown Campus, spans four weeks, totaling 120 hours of learning, preparing students for the CNA State Board Exam. Classes are conveniently offered in both morning (9 am – 2 pm) and evening (5 pm – 10 pm) sessions, accommodating students’ work schedules.

Tuition payment of $1300 covers textbooks, uniforms, and education provided by licensed nurses with over 40 years of experience. To enroll, prospective students can fill out an online application or submit a printed registration form to the main office. The payment schedule offers flexibility, allowing partial payments at various stages of the program.

The curriculum prepares students for diverse medical settings, including nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals, and clients’ homes. Responsibilities encompass vital signs monitoring, bathing, dressing, cooking, feeding, home tidiness, and assisting with range of motion exercises. An orientation one week before the first class provides an opportunity for questions and ensures preparedness.

The program emphasizes practical skills through hands-on training, ensuring students are adept at providing quality care to the elderly. Classes also cover essential academics for gathering crucial patient information. An introductory orientation is held at the Stenton Avenue campus one week before the first class, providing an additional opportunity to address questions.

It’s important to note that the program observes certain holidays and provides a schedule for orientation and class sessions. While the program cost covers uniforms, textbooks, and licensed nurse instruction, additional costs for a watch with a second hand, shoes, and an optional $10 Skilled Training DVD for the Certified Nursing Program should be considered.
