IHCA’s CNA Training Program
IHCA’s CNA Training is an 88-hour program, that encompasses the fundamental theories and skills underlying the nursing profession. It prepares students to sit for the Georgia certification exam for nurse aides. Training is divided into two parts – Academic Instruction, the theoretical background of nursing, which consists of classroom and lab time and Practical Training where students hone the skills required to be an effective CNA.
Academic Instruction includes studies of the fundamentals of nursing, health care, nutrition, infection control, biochemistry, and basic human anatomy and physiology. Classroom and lab time comprise the first 60 hours of instruction. Practical Training takes 28 hours to complete. Practical Training is supervised by a clinical instructor and takes place in a nursing home. The skills learned during the Academic Instruction are utilized as students prepare to take the state exam.
