« back to classes page
BSC's Continuing Education and TrainND (CE and TrainND) offers CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) Training to learners looking at working in a skilled nursing home facility, acute care or home health care. Registration will be closing the Wednesday prior to class.

Students who fail to attend by the third day will be withdrawn from class. Students may not miss more than 8 hours total.

Because this program receives funding from the U.S. Department of Labor, veterans and eligible spouses receive priority of service over non-covered persons. (20 CFR 1010)

Currently clinical practice is performed on the BSC Campus. Once our program is allowed back into clinical facilities, students should be aware of the potential requirement to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.

BSC cannot guarantee an exemption request will be granted.
