North Bay CNA Part Time Training Program is a 12 Week (weekends only) California State approved program from start to finish. You will learn everything you need to know about becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant and becoming an integral part of the health care team. CNA’s are always in demand and you can make a significant difference in someone’s life. It’s challenging and rewarding.
Our CNA Training Program in Sonoma County, will prepare you with the information, knowledge, skills and experience you will need to be a Nurse Assistant, providing quality care for residents/patients in long term care facilities, hospitals and home care.
North Bay CNA Training Program will arrange for you to take the California State Competency Exam. There are several places offering the test in Santa Rosa, as well as across the bay area and east bay. The student will be required to demonstrate the practical training he or she learned. The state examiner will test and determine if the student is ready to become a Certified Nursing Assistant. The student will be asked to perform 3 of the 25 skills that he/she learned during the program. In addition to the practical portion of the state test, the student will be required to take a written exam, which will consist of the theory portion of our program. There are also practice exams which will prepare you for the state written exam.
The student will first read and learn through lecture, how to:
- Wash your hands, (yes there is a proper way)
- Dress for infection control
- Take a blood pressure, pulse, respirations, temperature
- Weigh and measure residents
- Calculate cc/ml, for intake and output (you’ll learn!)
- Understand body functions, i.e. your heart, lungs, kidneys and how everything works together.
These are just a few exciting areas we will be covering.
There will be quizzes after each chapter and 2 exams plus a final exam on graduation day.
- The skills we talk about in theory, we will put into practice in our skills lab.
- There are 25 different and specific skills you will be required to learn
After we have completed our theory/lab portion of our program, you will take all that knowledge and experience you have learned and we will take you to our clinical site, for training. Training will consist of working with a CNA and taking care of the residents. You will be assisting the CNA, employee, with everything you learned in the skills lab portion of our program. Now you will put it into practice. We will be right there with you.
