Imagine a job that rewards you for caring about others… that is exciting and challenging… a job where you make a difference. Whether you’re just starting your career or ready for a change, now is the time to consider becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant, referred to in most states as a (CNA).
A Certified Nursing Assistant, or CNA, helps patients or clients with healthcare needs under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN) or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). Working closely with patients in a health care facility, hospital, nursing home, long-term care facility, or in their own home, you’ll complete such tasks as checking vital signs, making up patient beds, and assisting patients with personal tasks. In some cases, CNAs can also assist practical nurses with basic medical procedures.

The 76-Hour CNA Course is our most popular, so we offer several different was to take it. First, choose of you’d like to take all your coursework in-person on our Omaha campus, or take a portion of the class online and finish in-person.

Nurse aides work closely with nursing staff and doctors to provide exemplary patient care. These assistants often have at least a CNA certification, which can be earned online in a few weeks. They may also take additional nursing aide training as part of their continuing education. In addition to this, they may have completed nursing programs at local community colleges.
Certified Nurse Aide
Also known as orderlies or attendants, certified nurse aides work under LPNs and registered nurses. They operate in a variety of settings, including hospitals, psychiatric care facilities, long-term care facilities, and nursing homes. They also typically provide patient care, and may routinely check vital signs and perform some housekeeping duties as well.
Home Health Aide
Aside from CNA training, Home Health Aides need to have the patience and willingness to deal with unpredictable and challenging situations. Home health aides work in the homes of patients, delivering personal care to people with chronic illness and elderly patients with their daily self-care tasks.
State-Tested Nurse Aide
State-tested nurse aides’ responsibilities are similar to certified nurse aides, but they have passed a state exam and received their state certification, which can result in higher earning potential and increased responsibility.
Successful completion of your CNA training online provides the skills needed to help you excel in your career.
