Certified Nursing Assistant
Students can earn their Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). This certification is the first professional step in the nursing field. Many CTC graduates have used their CNA to work while pursuing their Registered Nurse (RN), Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), or their four-year nursing degree. This experience allows them to not only earn money while going to school, but to gain valuable experience in their field before they even graduate and develop their professional networks.
The CTC covers all testing and licensing fees. Students are only responsible for the cost of their scrubs, which can range from $50 to $100.
