About The Program

Valley School of Nursing’s Certified Nurse Assistant program is congealed with classroom lecture hours as well as practical education. Our program consists of 167 hours in total with a distribution of 60 hours of classroom training and 107 hours of clinical training. Students will gain the classroom/ theory and hands-on clinical experience in a selected, licensed Long Term Care Facility. Upon successful completion of the program, students receive a certificate of completion and are eligible for the competency examination given at the premises.

As a Certified Nurse Assistant’s job involves patient contact on a daily basis, our program is designed to equip the individuals with the skills, knowledge, and philosophy that such a caregiver must have.

• Deliver patient care necessary for the health and comfort of the patient
• Communication between patients, their family members and health professionals
• Therapeutic diets and feeding techniques
• Infection control and OSHA Universal Precautions
• Psychological and physiological changes in the aging patient
• Assisting patients with activities of daily living including bathing, dressing, and toileting
• Using good body mechanics for lifting, moving and transporting patients
• Assisting with admissions, discharge, and transfers
• Bowel and bladder training program
