Mid Michigan Community College (MMCC) will offer several sessions of CNA (Certified Nurse Aide) training. Trainings start March 12, May 7, and June 11, and last just six-weeks. Training is divided into two parts—60 hours of classroom instruction and 60 hours of hands-on skill practice in the laboratory and health care environments.
Successful completion of the six-week training and its associated written exam provides participants their CNA certifications. Completing students will be able to provide quality health care to clients in health care facilities. Recent graduates gave Mid’s CNA training a 97% satisfaction rating upon completion.
This rewarding career can launch your goal of becoming a healthcare professional. Many CNAs go on to earn nursing or other health professional credentials. Jobs for CNAs are in high demand, and employment is expected to grow by 17% over the next few years.
“I had been out of school for some time, and decided to join the CNA class. I was terrified walking in there, but in the first 15 minutes, I felt like I belonged. Our instructor made every day exciting and fun. I am so happy I decided to go back to school,” recalls Tonya, a recent CNA student.
Cost for the training is $1,600, but eligible students can have some or all costs offset through MI Works! or MI Rehab Services Funding. Interested individuals can contact their local agencies or MMCC to learn more about cost assistance options.
Textbook, workbook, blood pressure cuff, stethoscope, and wrist watch are included in the cost of tuition. Students are responsible for the state certification testing fee and for purchasing scrubs and white tennis shoes.
