Nurse Aide Training


Nurse Aide Training Program

The Nurse Aide Program, or nurses assistant program, is designed to prepare students for a career as a nurses aide and to take the Prometric State Test to become a Certified Nurse Aide. Upon completion of the program they have the knowledge and competent skills to work in facilities for long-term care.  This is a great entry point into the health care industry.

The Nurse Aide salary is dependent on the location, but is over $26,000 according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

You will receive instruction by Registered Nurses. Our instructors go beyond preparing you for the exam and prepare you for a real life workplace environment. 

The curriculum consists of 36 lecture hours, 36 hours of lab work and 24.5 hours of clinical experience. Included is also four hours of CPR training for a total of 100.5 hours.

At Charter, you can quickly complete your training in as little as four weeks. In addition to learning in an interactive classroom environment, you will obtain hands-on experience in our newly renovated simulation lab. Here you will practice caring for residents in a realistic environment that replicates a long term care facility.

Percentage of Graduates Working

“CNA’s”: Certified Nursing Assistant’s, are the “Eye’s and the Ear’s of the Doctors and the Nurses as it has been stated with so many in the field of Nursing. It is certainly my privilege and honor to empower students with the knowledge and spirit of “Excellence”! Our program catapults students not only into the entry level of Nursing but gives them an opportunity as a head start into most arena’s of health-care. I started as a Nursing Assistant many years ago and it delights me to pass on the excitement of being a care-giver to those who have blazed the trail for those interested in health-care.
