Finger Lakes Health is proud to offer a Certified Nursing Assistant Training Program that is approved by the New York State Department of Health.
Many certified nursing assistants (CNAs) use their education and experience as a beginning in the healthcare field. By taking advantage of opportunities for growth in their chosen career, many continue their education, becoming licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered nurses (RNs).
Employment opportunities are available at the Geneva Living Centers, The Homestead in Penn Yan, Huntington Living Center in Waterloo as well as many other long term care facilities.
Each program consists of classroom, lab and clinical instruction totaling 138 hours. Classes are held Monday thru Friday during the day and each program is four weeks in length. After successful completion of the training program, you will be eligible to take the New York State certification examinations.
