Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) Program

The Lake County Office of Education’s Career & College Readiness Department offers a course designed to train you to become a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA).  Under the supervision of a health professional, usually a licensed nurse, a CNA provides basic nursing services to ensure the safety, comfort, personal hygiene, and protection of patients/residents in a licensed long-term, intermediate health care facility or hospital. Upon successful completion of the Certified Nurse Assistant course, graduates receive a certificate of completion and are eligible to take the state certification exam.
