If a medical career – such as nursing – interests you, consider getting a head start
Most nursing programs require their students to take a CNA Course. Take it before you start and get all these benefits:
Test the Waters
At only $495 for this 40-hour course, it is a great way to get a feel for this field without a large investment. You may decide to pursue a medical career further. Or you may decide it is not the right match for you.
Learn Skills Before You Start
Every nurse needs to excel in basic skills such as the knowledge of medical supplies and their uses, computer charting, patient positioning, patient transferring, patient feeding practices, vital signs, and basic nursing care. Get access to these skills before your first day of nursing class with a CNA Course. Plus, you can then get a job at a nursing home or hospital to continue to practice these skills throughout your college career.
Start Networking Before Graduation
Everyone’s goal is to land the perfect job after graduation. If you get your CNA Certification before you start medical school, you are one step closer to making this happen. A CNA helps patients with healthcare needs under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN) or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). Working closely with patients – and the supervising nurse – in a health care facility or hospital you’ll be able to start the networking process and determine what type of facility would be your best match once you graduate.
Get Real-World Experience for a Competitive Advantage
Imagine your resume stating that you have been a practicing CNA while you were getting your nursing license. This puts you ahead of the competition and in a great position to find the perfect career. Plus, as a Quality graduate, you get access to our Preferred Hiring Partners, such as Nebraska Medicine and Children’s Hospital and Medical Center.
