Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Program


Regan Career Institute offers nurse assistant training. Upon satisfactory completion of the course, each graduate will receive a certificate of eligibility for the State Competency Test through the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program (NNAAP) / American Red Cross. This exam will test both your book knowledge and practical skills learned during training. All nurse assistant students must pass this state certification exam before they can become certified nursing assistants.

The training course can take five weeks or 10 weeks depending on the program you choose. RCI'S nurse assistant program offers competent training with value-oriented and cost-effective pricing. It is also possible to qualify for financial payment options to help shoulder the financial burden.


Some clinics will hire untrained and inexperienced workers and provide on-the-job training, but these opportunities may be hard to find. RCI offers training within medical facilities as part of our unique clinical program. Becoming a CNA is often seen as a stepping stone to becoming an RN or LVN. This natural transition in this medical profession often results in many job openings in entry-level positions.

CNA'S often work in the following facilities:

  • Long-term care facilities
  • Assisted living facilities
  • Intermediate care facilities
  • Skilled nursing facilities
  • Private home care agencies
  • Adult foster care homes
  • Hospitals
  • And more...


The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has detailed descriptions of the daily ups and downs of many positions, including those of the certified nurse assistant. The following were their descriptions of the nursing aide's daily duties:

  • Clean and sanitize patient rooms, bathrooms, examination rooms, or other patient areas.
  • Document or otherwise report observations of patient behavior, complaints, or physical symptoms to nurses.
  • Apply Non-Sterile dressings, slings, stockings, or support bandages, under the direction of a nurse or a physician.

Qualities of the CNA position are those that include a willingness to serve patiently and with sensitivity to the personal care of the patients or residents. The position is highly suited for people who are interested in helping to cure illness, mitigate misery, and generally add to the well-being of other people at the time they need it most.
