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.

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.

Registration is limited to 30 students for each session. In the event that we do not meet our minimum enrollment numbers, the CNA and BLS training will be cancelled and all payments refunded.

Already have your CNA certification or want to find out about more opportunities once you have your certificate?
