The duration of a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) program can vary depending on the institution and its curriculum structure. Typically, CNA programs range from 4 to 12 weeks in length. For instance, at CAL ACE Nursing Academy, the program is designed to be completed in 7 weeks, consisting of 3 weeks for online theory classes and 4 weeks for clinical training. This format allows students to gain essential theoretical knowledge through online coursework and then apply it practically in hands-on clinical experiences. It’s important to check with the specific program you’re interested in for its exact duration and schedule

Upon completing the CNA program, you’ll need to pass a state competency exam to become certified. This exam usually consists of a written portion and a skills demonstration.

After completing the CNA program and passing the certification exam, you’ll be eligible to apply for CNA positions in various healthcare settings. Many graduates secure employment as CNAs and begin their careers providing direct patient care under the supervision of licensed healthcare professionals.

CAL ACE Nursing Academy may offer renewal courses or Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to help CNAs meet their renewal obligations conveniently.
