Mid Michigan College’s Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) Short-Term Training takes just six weeks and prepares trainees to enter this high-demand healthcare field.

Mid trainees complete a full 120-hours of training, giving them the ability to transfer their certification to over 35 states—an important feature for those who aren’t sure where they may decide to call home.

“Surveyed graduates have given our CNA Short-Term Training a 97% satisfaction rating, something we’re very proud of as an organization,” said Kristine Stevens, Director of Business and Industry Training at Mid Michigan College. “We focus on fostering future success by supporting our students and connecting them to employers.”

Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) Short-Term Training prepares trainees to provide direct care to patients. Historically, 96% of Mid trainees complete the 120-hours of training successfully with an average score of 95% on their final exam, and 80% pass the State certification test on their first attempt.

CNA Short-Term Training costs just $1,600, and includes training materials, blood pressure cuff, stethoscope, and wrist watch. Training costs may be significantly reduced or completely offset through MiWorks! assistance programs. Potential trainees should contact their local MiWorks! to see if they qualify.

CNA Short-Term Training is scheduled to begin March 25, June 10, and September 9 at the Harrison Campus, and May 13, August 19, and October 28 at the Mt. Pleasant Campus.
