CNA Classes Sellersburg, IN

A career as a certified nursing assistant does not require lengthy formal education. In Indiana, a prospective nursing assistant must complete at least 105 hours of training, including 30 hours in the classroom and 75 hours at an approved clinical site. The short-term training is useful to those who desire a career in nursing as it gives them exposure to the world of patient care and sets the foundation for nursing students. Those who complete the formal training must then take a state certification exam to be added to the Indiana Nurse Aide Registry. A CNA executes a number of routine medical duties, including assisting patients with personal care, monitoring the patient’s response to treatment, measuring and recording vital signs, assisting with therapeutic treatments, answering call lights, transferring and positioning patients, and setting up medical equipment for treatments.
