Clinical training is critical to your success as a Certified Nurse Assistant. It is also a mandatory part of CNA classes in most states, comprising of 8-24 hours of the total training. The training is generally at a long – term care center or other approved facility that provides the outlet for nurse aide students to put their conceptual knowledge into practice.
Students will work directly under the supervision of a Registered Nurse or Licensed Practical Nurse Instructor. Without this opportunity to provide direct care in a real-world environment, you won’t have the training required to pass the class. Apart from providing the environment for hands-on learning, clinical experience should reinforce patient safety and comfort, the importance of infection control and respect for patients’ rights.
