Your future in healthcare starts here.
Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) play a vital role in the Trinity Healthcare system. They provide direct, basic nursing care to patients and help them perform daily activities they may have trouble doing on their own.
Trinity Health Certified Nursing Aide (CNA) Training Class
Trinity Health’s CNA Training class is for interested people who want to make a difference in health care, get paid for training, earn their CNA license quickly and be ready to put what they learned to work immediately! Regular participants in the class are paid a training wage through the class and all class materials are included. The only up-front expense is a set of Royal Blue scrubs for the job shadow experiences and future work as a Trinity Health CNA.
Working as a CNA
No experience is required, but customer service, a love for learning and a desire to help others are all important qualities! We are so confident in the participants’ success that we have them start applying and interviewing for their future CNA job on the first day of training! The CNA trainee can choose from many different departments and sets of hours. Benefits are available for those that work at least 20 hours a week, which may include daytime, evening, night, weekend and holiday shifts. Non-daytime shifts (evenings, nights and weekends) also come with a differential pay up to $3.75 an hour: extra money per hour on top of their base pay rate. Being a student can definitely have its benefits!
About the class:
The class is about 2 weeks, Monday through Friday, daytime hours. Classroom hours are usually 8:00am – 4:30 p.m. and attendance is required, but we can work with some school schedules. All the CNA needs to do is communicate with the instructor!
The CNA certification test is taken in the second week of class and has two parts: a computer “written” test and a hands-on skills test. We do not know what patient care skills the participant will be tested on, so the participant learns all the necessary skills to pass the test and be a good CNA.
After the test, we begin training the new CNA for the part of Trinity they will be working, whether hospital, nursing home or clinic.
