  • The American Red Cross Certified Nurse Assistant Training Course (CNA) in Massachusetts will provide the information and skills that will enable students to provide quality care for residents in nursing homes, for clients at home and patients in hospitals.

    In addition to the hands on skills such as bathing and bed making, the program focuses on providing concerned individualized care that adheres to the five principles of care: Safety, Privacy, Dignity, Communication and Independence.

    Students benefit from small classes, with caring, well-trained teachers. They receive hands-on experience as they learn in realistic clinical settings.

      Students will learn how to:

    • Care for residents in long-term facilities and patients in hospitals.
    • Provide basic nursing care in a home environment to allow clients to maintain an independent and quality lifestyle.
