Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Education Program
A CNA is a person who is certified to give care to residents/patients, under the direct supervision of a registered or licensed practical nurse. Nursing assistants must attend a 75-hour approved program of learning and earn a certificate that allows them to give patient care in a long term care facility.
Certification is not necessarily required to work in a hospital or for a home health care agency. The CNA program at Good Shepherd ranges from 3 weeks to 8 weeks in length. Upon successful completion of the course, the person is then qualified to take the written examination and demonstration skills test.
Good Shepherd generally offers the CNA class twice per year in April and October, Monday through Thursday each week from 5 pm to 10 pm.
If you have further questions or would like to get on the list for the next class, please contact the Staff Development Coordinator at (320) 258-9369 or submit a request for information.
