Certified Nursing Assistants work under the supervision of licensed nursing professionals. CNA’s are the health professionals that patients encounter most often. They are a very important part of the Health Care Team. Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA’s) are qualified to care for patients at assisted living centers, long-term care centers, home health agencies, and hospitals. Most LPN and RN training institutions require CNA Certification as a prerequisite.

The primary duty of Certified Nursing Assistants, or CNA’s, is direct patient care, including attending to daily needs such as bathing and hygiene, assisting those with eating difficulties, and helping patients with range-of-motion exercises. Nursing Assistants also record and monitor patients’ vital signs, as well as remaining alert for any changes in the patient’s behavior or condition that might signal problems.

Students are trained under the direction of a licensed nurse in a patient’s physical, emotional, and social care.

The Nursing Assistant program will cover:

  • Professional ethics
  • Basic safety and emergencies
  • CPR Certification
  • Communication skills
  • Body mechanics
  • Nutrition
  • Anatomy
  • Physiology
  • Vital signs
  • Infection control
  • Body systems and diseases
  • Personal care of the patient and the patient’s environment

Both classroom theory and clinical experience in a healthcare facility will be provided. Often the clinical experience will not be scheduled at the same time as classes. When students pass this course they will be qualified to sit for the Utah’s certification, written and skills exam.

  • MTech Nurse Assistant Program Certificate
  • Students are prepared to sit for the State of Utah Certified Nurse Assistant Certification Exam
  • Healthcare Provider BLS and First Aid Certificate
  • Registration is available to adult students only.
  • Students must have TB testing and a Hepatitis B vaccine, or sign a waiver form.
