The CNA Weekend program is 6 weeks long - 120 hours. It is in high demand and will be even more solicited as the "baby boomer" population retires by the thousands everyday. As a CNA, the participant enjoys from a large variety of job employment options: Hospitals, clinics, urgent care facilities, doctor's offices, assited living institutions, home care services etc.
The participants in this program will learn the fundamental skills of nurse assisting and more. At the completion of all the hours and successfully achieving 80% or better in the final school exam, the participant will receive a Certificate of completion. And the final step will be the state board certification in which the 80% or better is also observed.
This in turn, can lead into a *dream job with great pay, solid benefits and huge opportunities for growth.
*Depending on the institution the CNA is interested in job employment.
The caregiver program is 5.5 weeks and the students must enter 104 hours, and it is required that they pass a final examination with 75% or better.
After the completion of all the hours and the minimum pass grade, the participants will go for the state board examination in which they are given only a knowledge test. After successfully passing the board examination they will be officially a Caregiver in the State of Arizona. After that, they will be issued a certificate of completion.
The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that "there will be a 41% increase in home care and personal care jobs and
56% increase in the demand for home health aides in the next 10 years."
