Each instructional cycle allows time for intensive and individualized instruction. The course is delivered in a 10-day face-to-face setting in which full attendance is required to complete the program (see sample course syllabus for a detailed schedule). Following course completion, students will be qualified to take the National Nurse Aid Assessment Program (NNAAP) examination consisting of both a written and skills test. After passing both portions of the NNAAP exam (state test), the student earns the title "Certified Nurse Assistant".
Prerequisites: Please see the sample course 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 class, and are held from 6:30AM - 3:00PM at Eventide Heartland Care Center, 620 14th Ave NE, Devils Lake, ND 58301.
A Mantoux test for prior exposure to TB (tuberculosis) must be completed and a copy of results submitted to TrainND Northeast prior to participating in the clinical portion of the class. This may be obtained at your local public health office or your physician's office. Click here for a guide on Mantoux testing.
If you are attending class during the November 1 - March 1 timeframe, it is strongly recommended students are up-to-date with the influenza vaccination.
Cost includes books, training materials, laboratory fees, and instruction from an experienced Registered Nurse instructor. Upon successful completion of the program, TrainND will cover your testing fee for the NNAAP written exam and skills test.
