Want a great career in healthcare but not sure where to begin? U.S. Career Institute’s Introduction to Nursing Assistant Online Course (Pre-CNA) training classes are a great place to start! Our self-paced Intro to CNA training school gives those looking to enter the CNA field a unique advantage with our online preliminary training. In as little as two months, you can be prepared to enter a full Certified Nursing Assistant program – with all the background needed to send you straight to the head of the class. Students will get a preparatory education in vital signs, first aid, communication and documentation, ethics, nutrition, psychology, medication, patient needs, positioning and cleanliness. As the healthcare field continues to grow, so does the need for trained CNAs, who administer basic care and help patients with daily routines.

Why Choose Certified Nursing Assistant?

A career in the in-demand CNA field offers a wide array of opportunities. Certified Nursing Assistants—working under the supervision of a registered nurse or healthcare practitioner—may choose to work in private homes, nursing homes, care communities, or other healthcare facilities. Some might work with only one patient, while others work with groups, and some might even help those with disabilities go to work. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics employment of nursing assistants is expected to grow 8% from 2020 to 2030 – which means over 192,000 job openings per year.** No matter where you end up working, our Introduction to Nursing Assistant online course will put you firmly on the road to a career in healthcare.
