The American Red Cross offers training for entry-level healthcare careers through its Nurse Assistant Training (CNA) program. The program equips students and helps give them a career pathway into the fast-growing industry, while also helping communities alleviate a shortage of adequately trained Certified Nurse Assistants (CNAs).

During the course Red Cross NAT instructors teach students the skills required to become CNAs and provide basic care such as feeding, dressing, bathing and monitoring patients so they can work in long-term care facilities like nursing homes and assisted living, hospitals and in-home health care. The program also offers graduates placement support and a distinct emphasis on professionalism, punctuality and a commitment towards work.

The Red Cross has provided nurse assistant training for more than two decades and has been a leader in the nursing profession for more than 100 years. With its strong tradition of nursing, the Red Cross is a solid choice for people seeking nurse assistant training.

Students who participate in the training program have the privilege of being taught by long-time working professionals who are all Registered Nurses or Licensed Vocational Nurses.
