Infection control & Adult Care…CNA Classes in AZ

The OBRA-87 legislation has also prompted Arizona Dept of Health Services & the Arizona State Board of Nursing to oversee the CNA programs offered by numerous nursing schools. They try to see that all schools offering these meets the federal requirements in their training programs

CNA Training Arizona

CNA Training Arizona must be state and federal approved and must have duration of 75-120 hours of classroom/lab instruction and clinical hands-on training. The training course includes:

  • Medical ethics
  • Emergency care
  • Basic Nursing Skills
  • General Nursing Skills
  • Nursing care
  • Infection control
  • Adult Care
  • Rehabilitation
  • Promotion of Residents’ rights and Independence

The CNA students must also note that the classroom learning must be completed before clinical experience. During classroom course training, they are not allowed to interact with actual patients but, they can work with the residents for their clinical hands-on training. The program instructor or R/LPN with 1-2 years experience has the responsibility to supervise the trainings.

In Arizona, one can complete their CNA training through community or vocational, colleges, high schools, private schools, technical institutes, adult learning institutes, and long-term care facilities.

A student can also attend online programs. Even free CNA Training can be availed by applying for various state and federal grants and scholarships. Free training offered by nursing homes has a condition that a student must work in the facility for certain period of time after the completion of the program. If students agree on these conditions, their training costs are paid by the facility.

Carly received her cna certification from Lower Columbia College in Longview WA. Carly really loves her job, her two cats and one dog. Her first passion is writing, she loves to encourage other people who are thinking of becoming a cna to take that first step. Thats why she asked us if she could help with this site. Without Carly I dont think this website would be possible or in any way successful. Thank you Carly for all your input. Contact Carly at: [email protected]
