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 64 hours classroom/lab instruction, and 24 hours of clinical practice in a long-term care facility. Upon completion of the course, students will be certified to register with Pearson VUE to take the State Certification test.The State of Georgia prohibits on-line Certified Nurse Aide Courses.
The registration fee covers instruction, textbook, required supplies, clinical supervision, 1 set of scrubs, a stethoscope, and name badge. Students are personally responsible for the out of pocket 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 will be documents attached containing important information regarding our course requirements. Read all the attachments carefully and take appropriate action to meet the specified requirements. All course requirements must be completed before the first day of class and all required documents given to the CNA Instructor on the first day of class. These are State mandated requirements and failure to do so could result in you being dropped from the course. If for some reason you do not receive the attachments, you need to take immediate action. You can download the documents from the UWG CNA webpage UWG CNA
CLASS SCHEDULE: The classroom/lab portion of the course will be conducted on Saturday, January 9th through March 6th in the Murphy Building, 1st Level (Continuing Education), CNA Classroom and Skills Lab, Rooms 1130 A & B from 8:00 AM until 4:00 PM each scheduled Saturday. There will be no classes on Saturday, January 16th or Sunday, January 17th due to the MLK Holiday. Clinical sessions will be conducted on Saturday, March 13th, Sunday, March 14th, and Sunday, March 21st off campus at a local long-term care facility, conditions permitting. If not, clinicals will be conducted in the Murphy Building CNA Classroom/Lab. We will schedule both morning (6:30 A.M. to 2:30 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. 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. The State of Georgia dictates that no CNA student may work more than one (1) eight (8) hour shift per day during clinical rotations. Certification test dates for the course have not yet been determined. If testing cannot be offered on-site at UWG, students will have to register at a Regional Test Site (RTS) of their choice. Information will be communicated once more details are known about the COVID-19 guidelines at that time.
