individuals looking for a rewarding career in health care. Certified nurse aides are valuable members of the health care team who work in a variety of settings, including: hospitals, rehabilitation centers, clinics, skilled nursing facilities, home care, and many others. CNAs are qualified to perform many important functions for people in need, such as providing personal care and measuring vital signs under the supervision of registered nurses. Employment as a Certified Nurse Aide can be a great way to earn money and work with people.
NVCC is proud to offer one of Connecticut's largest, oldest and most respected CNA programs. All of our instructors are experienced registered nurses. We exceed the minimum standards set by the State for the number of course hours; so you will get more hours of practice in our health lab and more supervised time working with residents in the clinical setting.
Our program includes one opportunity to sit for the Connecticut Nurse Aide Competency Exam, offered on site, and included in the cost of the course. NVCC's annual first-time pass rate for this state exam exceeds 98%.
Students will attend classes in a college setting and have free access to college support resources, including the Max R. Traurig Library and Center for Job Placement and College Opportunities.
