CNA training was developed to prepare you to deliver the level of care your patients will need. The in-class, or theory, the component of our CNA training program will help you understand and learn how to provide proper patient care. This component includes lectures and hands-on, in-class practice.
After successfully completing your in-class work, you’ll begin your clinical work – which allows you to, under the guidance of a licensed nurse, work directly with patients in a healthcare facility.

CNA SALARY PER HOUR
As an entry-level position, CNA jobs may pay employees an hourly wage. For aspiring nursing assistants who are wondering about average hourly rates, the BLS reports a median hourly wage for nursing assistants of $15.72 nationwide. According to the BLS, nursing assistants can expect to make between $16 and $21.02 per hour in Indiana, depending on the facility. Travel CNA could make up to $30.00/hr
TYPE OF EMPLOYER
Certified nursing assistants may work in a variety of job settings providing basic patient care such as feeding, dressing and bathing patients, helping with activities of daily life and taking vital signs. They may find jobs in government organizations such as the Department of Veteran Affairs and local departments of health, hospitals, travel assignments, nursing care facilities, home health organizations, and retirement and assisted living communities for the elderly.
In general, jobs in larger cities and more populated areas tend to offer higher salaries than smaller towns and rural areas to compensate for higher costs of living. However, in some cases, if there is a high demand for nurses in a more remote area, salaries will increase to attract new employees.
