Our CNA/GNA program is a 16-credit program designed to be completed in one semester (or may be taken in two). Students can register for these classes through Continuing Education or as a credit course. Financial Aid is available for qualifying credit students. Limited financial aid may be available for CE students.
Throughout the classroom portion, students work in our contemporary skills lab for hands-on learning. After completing the classroom/skills session, students practice their skills and knowledge under the supervision of their instructor during their 45-hour clinical at a local nursing home.
Our program is approved by the Maryland Board of Nursing, which allows students who complete the program to apply for certification in Maryland. Graduates are also eligible to sit for the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program exam, which gives them the Geriatric Nursing Assistant certification. This is required to work in a MD nursing home.
The CNA/GNA program at ACM is designated as a Health Manpower Shortage Program by the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC).
