Program Information

Our Classes

TN Health Careers offer weekday, evening and weekend classes to fit your busy schedules. We understand that many of our students have other responsibilities such as families, full or part time jobs and other forms of education that they need to work around in order to get their CNA certification. We try to be flexible with our schedule in order to work with your schedule rather than against it. All Instructors are approved through the Tennessee Department of Health and have at least 2 years previous experience in nursing home facilities prior to teaching.

The Classes

CNA 101: The course consists of 60 hours of classroom and 50 hours of clinical.

During the classroom portion, you will learn all of the skills necessary to practice safe procedures that will carry you through your career as a nurse aide. This is achieved through interactive games, hands-on activities and the use of videos to make learning fun and enhance your experience.

As part of our creative teaching style, all tests and quizzes are available on CDs for students who prefer to have them read orally. At any point during the program, should a student desire a tutor we will provide one for an additional fee.

During clinical, you will utilize your new skills through hands-on experience with the residents at your training facility.
