The Certified Nursing Assistants work in numerous settings in the health care field, including but not limited to long term care facilities, assisted living facilities, hospitals, clinic, and doctor’s offices. They work under the supervision of medical staff such as Physicians and Registered Nurses.

Someone at one of the nursing homes could probably tell you about CNA classes. When I worked at one they sent me to Berryville where a class was held. The nursing home paid for the class. They might still do that. Of course they expect you to work for them.

The LPN program at North Ark is not a LPN class anymore. They are a certificate class and you have to get your licenses elsewhere. Not sure where but will find out.

My daughter and her boyfriend start these classes in the spring.
