Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Training Program

The Friendly Home offers a six-week paid CNA training program on a quarterly basis. If you are a caring and compassionate individual seeking a career in the field of aging services, this may be the perfect opportunity for you!

What does a CNA do?

CNAs play a vital role in the care of residents, including assisting with personal grooming and hygiene needs, meals, mobility and helping with other basic needs. By providing person-centered care, CNAs form meaningful relationships with those they serve.

What does the CNA training program involve?

Classes are typically held Monday-Friday over a six-week period, and include classroom, clinical and hands-on training. At the conclusion of the training, participants will take the New York State CNA exam, which will be paid for by the Friendly Home. Successful trainees may be offered employment at the Friendly Home following their official certification.

What are the requirements?

You must have a high school diploma or GED, be at least 18 years of age, and practice the Friendly Home values of Compassion, Teamwork, Friendship, Customer Focus, Excellence and Integrity to participate in the training program.
