CONTINUING EDUCATION HEALTH PROGRAMS

Nursing Assistant Programs

Nursing assistants are important health care professionals who handle day-to-day care of patients.  There is currently high demand for Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), Acute Care Nursing Assistants, and Certified Home Health Aides in southern California and throughout the state.  In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics lists nursing assistants as one of the fastest-growing occupations in the United States. Opportunities for work and upward mobility in healthcare will provide you both job security and exciting challenges for many years to come.

The CNA and CHHA programs are both licensed through the State of California, Health & Human Services, Department of Public Health, Licensing & Certification Section.  The public, prospective students, and applicants can access information and all requirements and forms at:
