Blue Skies Hospice – Certified Nurse Assistant (C.N.A.) Program

Blue Skies Hospice is offering a 105 hour Certified Nurses Aide training course which is fully accredited by the Indiana State Department of Health.  The C.N.A. training prepares students for certification placement. The course includes 30 hours of classroom training at 649 Mulberry Street, Hammond, IN and 75 hours of clinicals at an approved long term facility within the community.  Students learn to function as members of a healthcare team through assisting residents with basic personal care such as:  bathing, ambulation, nutrition, elimination, comfort, safety, and other routine procedures, as well as meeting psychosocial and spiritual needs.

Prior to receiving certification training, the state requires a TB test, a physical examination, and a criminal check.  You will be given the proper forms for these requirements.  Class will be limited to only 12 people and we ask that you attend class attired in blue scrubs, jacket and white shoes.  Students must attend all class sessions and pass the exam to receive their Certification Card.

Once you’ve successfully completed the course, you will be eligible for the Certification Exam.  Future employment opportunities include hospitals, nursing homes, physician offices and. home health and hospice agencies,
