CNA Certificate Training

Play a critical role in caring for older adults physically —as well as emotionally, socially, mentally and spiritually.

Overview and Benefits

We are excited to offer a combined Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers (BLS) Certificate Training, open to all St. Kate’s students at a lower cost than other area certificate classes. The program fee is an all inclusive cost, and at completion you will have your CNA licenses and AHA card.

Certificate Costs

  • $1030 – early bird registration by August 1
  • $1100 – after August 1

The certificate training fee includes class fee, clinical background check, Mantoux TB test, exam fees, and AHA card fee. Scrubs, additional TB testing, fingerprinting fees, and additional retests are at the cost of the student.

Limited need-based financial assistance is available. Applications are due by July 30, and recipients of assistance will be notified by August 1.
