Each instructional cycle allows time for intensive and individualized instruction from an experienced long-term care RN instructor. This training program is delivered in a 10-day face-to-face setting in which full attendance is required to successfully complete the program (see sample training program syllabus for a detailed schedule). Upon completion of the program, students will be eligible to take the state certification exam consisting of both a written and skills test. After passing both portions of the exam, the student earns the title "Certified Nurse Assistant".
Prerequisites: Please see the sample training program syllabus for important information regarding course prerequisites and other policies.
Participants will complete two (2) 8-hour clinical days as part of the training. Clinical days typically are scheduled to occur the final two days of training, and are held from 6:00AM - 2:30PM at Eventide Heartland Care Center, 620 14th Ave NE, Devils Lake, ND 58301.

If you are attending clinicals during the November 1 - March 1 timeframe, it is strongly recommended students are up-to-date with the influenza vaccination.
