Good Nursing and Medical Training (GNAMT) offers a state-approved Day, Evening, and Weekend CNA Program. Students are trained to perform routine tasks under the supervision of a licensed nurse. They help care for physically or mentally ill, injured, disabled, or fragile individuals confined to hospitals, long-term care nursing facilities, nursing homes, assisted living, personal care homes, rehabilitation, hospice, home care, mental health facilities, and other health care settings. CNAs also help patients feel safe and comfortable throughout their hospital stay. As a CNA, your duties include but not limited to:
- Serving meals
- Helping patients eat, dress, and bathe as well as providing skin care
- Taking the patient’s temperature, pulse rate, respiration rate, and blood pressure
- Assisting patients in getting in and out of bed and walking
- Keeping the patients’ rooms neat
- Making beds
- Observing, monitoring, and reporting changes to the nurse
The CNA Training Covers:
- Age-specific care across the lifespan
- Safe patient care delivery
- Infection control principles and practices
- Body mechanics and mobility skills
- Communication skills
- Assisting with activities of daily living
- Nutrition and assisting patients with meeting nutritional needs
- Common health problems and nurse assistant care

A clinical experience is included, and this allows students to put the skills they learned in class into practice. In addition to becoming a CNA graduate, the course also provides an opportunity for those interested in nursing as a profession to become more informed of the RN practice and develop a plan of action for becoming an LPN or RN.

- Take the state CNA exam.
