CNA Programs That Fit Your Life
There are many reasons why people choose to get a certificate as a Certified Nurses Aide (CNA). If you have a passion for helping people and want a career in the healthcare industry, getting your CNA certificate is one of the quickest ways to start. Whether you choose to remain in a CNA position or decide to further your career and become a registered nurse or other healthcare professional, signing up for our CNA courses will be your first step towards a rewarding career.
Not everyone who enrolls in our CNA program does so because they want to work in the healthcare industry. Caring for aging parents or having a child with special needs creates the need for caregiver training. Many people can’t afford full-time nursing care and therefore choose to do some or all of it themselves. Enrolling in our Certified Nurses Aide classes will provide you with the skills necessary to make sure your loved one receives proper care.
The path to becoming a certified CNA and the reasons for doing so are different for everyone. Because of this, we’ve created three different programs tailored to fit different situations. Read below to learn about each of our CNA programs and to find out which option is best for you
If you want to pursue your CNA certificate, but aren’t sure how to fit classes into your already busy schedule, our Flex CNA Program might be right for you. If you have a dynamic work schedule or family obligations that require a lot of your time, our FlexCNA program can give you the flexibility you need. By allowing you to work on your course requirements as your schedule permits, you can complete the course in as little as two weeks, or take as long as 90 days. Like our other programs, the FlexCNA program consists of online coursework as well as in-class instruction and is approved by the Colorado State Board of Nursing.
The hybrid CNA Program is our most popular. It was created to offer the best of both worlds — online learning for flexibility as well as in-person classes for skill-building. Students opting for this program can expect 20 hours of online coursework and 16 hours of face-to-face training each week. After three short weeks, students will receive a certificate of completion and be ready to register for the Colorado State Exam for full CNA certification.

Getting your CNA certificate isn’t just for people wishing to start a career in healthcare. Almost everyone knows someone who is caring for an aging parent or a child with special needs. Being able to care for a loved one or family member can be fulfilling, but extremely stressful. With rising healthcare costs, many people aren’t able to pay for 24-hour care or a nurse’s aide and therefore the responsibility falls on them. If you are in the situation of caring for someone that isn’t able to care for themselves, having proper training is incredibly important. Our Parent CNA Program can teach you the important skills necessary to have when another person’s safety and wellness is in your hands.
