Sheridan College hosts information session for Certified Nursing Assistant course

The Certified Nursing Assistant course at Sheridan College prepares students for entry-level employment in the health care field. The CNA program will host a free information session on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 1 p.m. at the Sheridan College Whitney Academic Center in room W181. The next CNA course at Sheridan College begins Jan. 21.

Attendees will learn about prerequisites needed, costs of the course, and how becoming a CNA can launch a rewarding career in health care.

The Sheridan College CNA course consists of six to seven weeks of online learning, followed by five days of in-person labs, tests and on-site clinicals. Students will attain the skills and knowledge they need to take the certification examinations administered by the Wyoming State Board of Nursing that are required to become a CNA. This accredited CNA course prepares students for employment at hospitals, long–term care facilities and with home-care services.

“This course gives students the knowledge and skills they need for a lifelong career as a CNA, or it can be a great way to gain experience in health care before going on to pursue further education,” said Amy Wyatt, CNA instructor.
