Unfortunately, once you start one class you cannot switch to another one. We have small class sizes and most of the time our classes run at capacity. Also, each class runs at a different pace. Even though it covers the same material, it’s presented in different time slots which doesn’t allow for easy transfers.
We encourage you to find a class that you will be able to start and complete in its entirety before registering.

Included in this folder is a list of facilities throughout the state that like to hire our new graduates. This list includes all of these facilities’ contact information for you to get started.

Our JobsBoard is made up of current LNA job openings that different agencies, home care facilities, long term care facilities and hospitals have requested that we post exclusively for our students. This is also helpful when starting your job search. In addition, many classes will have the opportunity to listen to an employer present to them about available employment opportunities within their company. Employers frequently contact us about coming in to present to classes on their last day of the course to recruit new graduates.
Yes, our program is comprised of 50 hours of theory and 60 hours of clinical. Students spend the first half of class in the classroom and lab setting and then do their clinicals in a long-term care facility. At orientation the student is given a class calendar which indicates which days are classroom days and which days are clinical days.
It is extremely important if you have had a past conviction, that you disclose it on your initial application. We run criminal record checks on all of our students. If it is disclosed ahead of time, our Coordinator will evaluate the charge(s) and will determine if you meet the eligibility requirements before you start the course. Please refer to our criminal record policy which states, “Individuals with a positive criminal record may have difficulty finding gainful employment in the healthcare field and may not be eligible for licensure. Because of this, LNA Health Careers has adopted a strict criminal record policy and each applicant with any prior convictions will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. However, individuals with any felony convictions will not be accepted into the program.
