Our Mission at Accord Healthcare Institute is to provide quality, affordable education to people interested in becoming Certified Nursing Assistants.*
Certified Nursing Assistants
Certified Nursing Assistants, (CNAs), are a valuable member of the healthcare team. Working under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN), CNAs provide care for patients in different healthcare settings. CNAs take patient vital signs, assist with activities of daily living (such as hygiene, dressing, walking), and other care giving tasks within the CNAs scope. Certified Nursing Assistants are employed in hospitals, long term care facilities, and home care settings. In order to become a CNA, you must complete a CNA training program approved by the Arizona State Board of Nursing and pass the Arizona State Board of Nursing Certified Nursing Assistant examination.**
*Certified Nursing Assistants must complete a training program approved by the Arizona State Board of Nursing. After completion of the program, a test administered by the Arizona State Board of Nursing must be passed.
**The Arizona State Board of Nursing has specific requirements in order to take the Certified Nursing Assistant examination. Prior convictions, misdemeanor or felony, may prevent you from becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant. This includes juvenile offenses. All candidates must provide proof of citizenship/legal presence in order to receive a Certified Nursing Assistant Certificate from the Arizona State Board of Nursing. All Accord Healthcare Institute students must pass a drug screening and background check prior to enrolling in the program. Please visit the Arizona State Board of Nursing’s website at www.azbn.gov for specific requirements. Please ask your enrollment specialist for more information.
