The LNA program consists of 110 hours of training. Students participate in 50 hours of classroom and lab training and 60 hours of clinical training where they actually care for residents in a training facility or simulated lab setting.
Learning is achieved through class lectures, video, discussions, role-playing, hands on laboratory skills training and demonstration and clinical practice. Our students learn procedural skills such as bathing, dressing vital signs, positioning, safety, and preventative skills.
