Have you ever thought about becoming a CNA?
If you are seeking a challenging and rewarding career in the medical field, this course will provide you with the skills and experience to be Maine State Certified as a Nursing Assistant. Nurse’s aide skills will be taught in an interactive classroom setting, and a two-week clinical experience will follow. The course will focus on nursing theory and application, including basic anatomy & physiology, and clinical performance. Applicants are strongly encouraged to job shadow a CNA before interviewing.
Lewiston Adult Education's Certified Nursing Assistant course will meet Tuesdays & Thursdays from 4:00-9:00 pm, starting February 15th.
