About the event
A CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) or GNA (Geriatric Nursing Assistant) class is a training program that provides students with the skills and knowledge needed to become a certified nursing assistant or geriatric nursing assistant. These classes typically cover topics such as basic nursing skills, patient care and communication, infection control, nutrition and hydration, and safety and emergency procedures.
The curriculum of a CNA/GNA class usually consists of classroom lectures, hands-on training in a simulated lab or clinical setting, and supervised clinical experiences in a healthcare facility. Students may also learn about legal and ethical issues related to healthcare and patient rights.
Upon completion of the CNA/GNA class, students are eligible to take the certification exam to become a certified nursing assistant or geriatric nursing assistant, depending on the state and program requirements. These healthcare professionals provide direct patient care under the supervision of registered nurses and other healthcare professionals in various settings, such as hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and home health agencies.
