If you’re graduating soon and are ready to get started on an exciting, fulling career, consider opportunities in the healthcare field as a certified nurse assistant. Certified nurse assistants work on healthcare teams with nurses, doctors and technicians to provide the best possible care to patients. The demand for CNAs is growing across the country and opportunities are available in private home settings, hospitals and nursing homes.
Nursing assistant jobs are projected to grow at a faster rate than all other occupations with a predicted 11 percent increase from 2016 to 2026 from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In 2016, there were more than 1.5 million nursing assistants nationwide. The role rises in demand as the country faces a shortage of healthcare providers.
How do you become a CNA? The certification process with MGA Academy consists of a four-week course, including three weeks of hands-on classroom learning and one week of clinical rotations. During these four weeks, students are prepared for real, on-the-job experiences as well as Colorado state exams. Many MGA Academy graduates go on to become in-home care providers or find work in healthcare facilities. Some MGA Academy students enroll in the program to meet pre-requirements for nursing school.
MGA Academy offers two CNA training programs this Spring, running from March 26 to April 20 and April 23 to May 18. Evening classes are designed to work around work and school hours, taking place Monday through Thursday from 5:45 pm to 10:00 pm. Evening clinical rotations are from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Daytime hours are available as well. The four-week course costs $950 and includes a two- year BLS CPR certification, a voucher for the state exam, textbook rental and a background check.

“The class was amazing! And, the two teachers we had, Jenni and Cindy, really complimented each other. I have taken several different classes over the years and have never had teachers who could keep you so interested while lecturing.”
