Why would I want to consider a career as a CNA?
The demand for well-trained health care paraprofessionals is growing as the baby boom generation rapidly approaches elderhood. Many health care providers employ paraprofessionals for additional job support. Long term care facilities (nursing homes), home health agencies, hospice, assisted living centers, adult day health programs, rehabilitation facilities, hospitals and others offer secure employment options with good benefits, flexible hours and career advancement opportunities.
As an CNA/HHA you will have the additional satisfaction of making a positive difference in the lives of the individuals for whom you provide care. Beyond career options, the direct care skills and body of knowledge you will gain through this program will greatly enhance your ability to care for yourself and your loved ones with more comfort and confidence.
