Our New York State approved training programs combine classroom instruction and supervised clinical experience with the philosophy of providing holistic and relationship based care.
Classroom instruction includes basic personal care skills to assist residents in their daily activities, nutritional needs, safety, communication techniques, growth, and development through the life span. Emphasis lies on the older adult population, the natural process of aging, basic anatomy and function of the human body as well as ethical and legal responsibilities of the CNA.
The supervised clinical experience allows trainees to practice and perfect their skills while caring for actual residents of the Living Centers and The Homestead.
Upon successful completion of training, students will be eligible to apply to take the New York State certification examinations.
To be eligible for the program you must be at least 16 years of age and be able to read at a 9th grade level. Attendance of the entire training program is very important in order for the program requirements to be met and for trainee performance to be evaluated. There is minimal allowance for absence.
