CNA REFRESHER COURSE

This course is for the certified nurse aides (CNA's) who have not met the requirement that they have been employed to perform nursing tasks in the past 24 consecutive months, or who cannot obtain verification for such employment. The refresher course was developed to give employers another option for updating an aide's eligibility to work. Now a licensed registered nurse may administer a Kansas Nurse Aide Task Checklist - for Employment Verification or the CNA may successfully complete the CNA Refresher Course.

Eligible students can use military payments (GI Bill, Tuition Assistance) or financial aid (FAFSA, K.HPOP, DCF, Workforce Development) to help pay for the class. Please email Raven Smith raven.smith@cloud.edu for more information.

All interested persons must register in order to secure a place in the class. Class size is limited. Please call the Cloud County Community College Advising Office at l-800-729-5101or 243-1435 Ext. 275.
