The UWG Certified Nursing Assistant Program is approved through the Georgia Department of Community Health (GDCH) and meets standards outlined in the "Policies and Procedures for Nurse Aide Training Program (NATP)". The nurse aide course is taught in English ONLY. The course offers training to candidates that desire to become eligible for certification as a certified nurse aide (CNA). The program provides a comprehensive course to train candidates to work in all health care facilities (e.g. nursing homes, hospitals, hospice, home health, etc.). The UWG CNA course is a total of 88 hours consisting of 31 hours classroom instruction, 33 hours lab and 24 hours of clinical practice in a long-term care facility. Upon completion of the course, students will be scheduled to take the State Certification test at UWG.No on-line Certified Nurse Aide Courses are allowed in the State of Georgia.
The registration fee covers instruction, textbook, required supplies, clinical supervision, 1 set of scrubs, stethoscope, and name badge. Students are personally responsible for the cost of their Advantage Students Background/Drug Check (approximately $78.50) and Certification Test Fee (currently $112.00).
When you receive your registration confirmation, there should be six (6) attachments containing important information regarding requirements you MUST meet in order to attend the CNA course. You must open and read all the attachments carefully and take appropriate action to meet those requirements BEFORE the first day of class. If for some reason you do not receive the attachments, you should download the documents from the UWG CNA webpage UWG CNA
CNA CLASS SCHEDULE The CNA classroom/lab portion of the course will be conducted on Saturdays beginning on July 27th through September 14th in the Murphy Building, 1st Level, CNA Classroom and Skills Lab, Rooms 1130 A & B from 8:00 AM until 4:00 PM each scheduled Saturday. Clinical sessions will be conducted on Saturdays, September 21st, 28th, and October 5th. For classes with more than 11 students, we will schedule both morning (6:30 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.) and evening (2:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M.) clinical sessions. The class will be split equally between the morning and evening clinical schedules. The State of Georgia dictates that no CNA student may work more than one (1) eight (8) hour shift per day during clinical rotations. We will try to take into consideration each person's needs in developing the clinical schedules. If we reach an impasse, the date a student registered for the course will determine who has preference to attend which session. Certification test dates for this class have not yet been finalized. The exact dates and test times will be negotiated with the Credentia Test Examiner and you will be given as much advance notification as possible.
