Hospital CNA Training

by Maria Pavel on September 15, 2011

There are many schools that offer Certified Nursing Assistant, or CNA, training courses that will prepare you for this much needed career in the healthcare field. In addition to schools, there are many hospitals and nursing homes that offer CNA training. Many times, it’s more beneficial to get your training in a hospital as they offer advantages that schools can’t supply.

To begin with, hospitals give you the chance to actively practice the nursing skills that you’re required to know as a CNA. There are patients all over the place at a hospital and this offers you many opportunities to learn the clinical skills you’ll need to know. You won’t need to find a place to learn those skills because you’ll already be there.

Teaching hospitals offer, possibly, the best learning experience that you’ll find anywhere. As a CNA works directly with the patients, even more so than the doctors and nurses, you’ll be in the best possible environment to learn everything you need to know. Performing something makes it much easier to learn and retain than simply reading about it and trying to go from there.

Most of your learning experience when you choose to become a CNA through a hospital is hands on. You’ll be brought in to assist other nurses with patients so that you’re learning while you’re working. When you learn this way, by the time your training is finished, you won’t notice any difference because you’ll already be working in what you’ve been doing for the last couple of months, or however long this hospital training program is.

Many hospitals offer CNA training through on the job training. This means that you’ve been hired as CNA in training. You’ll be paid while you learn and that’s a deal that’s hard to beat. This type of position means that you can actually quit whatever job you were working at before because you can afford to since you’ll be getting paid a salary while you’re in training. That makes things a lot simpler because you don’t have to keep working while also going to school.

Once you’ve been released to take your CNA licensing exam and pass it, you’ve got a job waiting for you. In addition, you’ll be so much better prepared to perform the duties of a CNA since that’s what you’ve been doing all along. Training at a hospital definitely cuts down on the time involved and you’ll be much better trained by the time you’re ready to take your exam.
