CNA Programs in Utah


Like other states throughout the US, there’s a large, and growing, demand for trained and certified healthcare staff, like certified nurses aides.

Since most training courses last a matter of months, at the most, and since training as a CNA in Utah and elsewhere is cheaper than most other forms of medical training (with the possibility of studying free), this is one of the best and fastest ways to get involved in the healthcare business.

Before you sign up for a CNA training program in Utah, however, there are a few things you should know.

State Approval for CNA Training Programs in Utah

Like most other states in the US, if you want to train as a certified nurses aide in Utah, you need to ensure that the program you choose is approved by the state. In Utah, approval for CNA classes is the domain of the Utah Nursing Assistant Registry, so if you are looking for courses, make sure they are accredited by that body before you sign up.

Where to Find Approved CNA Training Programs in Utah

The good news is that there are many institutions, throughout Utah, where you can find accredited training programs. These include dedicated CNA training centers, technical and vocational schools, community colleges, nursing homes and high schools. Where you study doesn’t matter, as long as the course you choose is state approved.

Course Contents for CNA Training In Utah

The Utah Nursing Assistant Registry also sets the curriculum for training courses, and all approved courses will cover the mandated number of hours of training required by the state. That training is divided into clinical training (supervised by a nurse or medical professional), lab based studies, and class room study.

Course modules cover a wide range of skills you will need when employed as a CNA in Utah, including infection control, emergency procedure, patient rights, communication and interpersonal skills, patient care, basic nursing and more. When you have completed the course, you will be equipped to work in any nursing home, long term care facility or hospital in the state.

CNA Certification in Utah

In order to become a certified nurses aide in Utah, you need to pass the Nurse Aide Training and Competency Evaluation Program (NATCEP). The exam assesses both practical and theoretical knowledge, in two parts, and the pass mark for both is in excess of 75%. Once you have passed that examination, you can apply for inclusion on the Utah Nursing Assistant Registry, and once you’ve done that, you’re legally allowed to work as a CNA in the state.

Salary and Employment Prospects for a CNA in Utah

The average salary for a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) in Utah is a little over $22,000 per annum, although many experienced Certified Nurse Assistants earn more than that! There’s also a huge 37% growth in the demand for CNA’s expected by the Utah Department of Workforce Services between now and 2016, so jobs are plentiful.

Add to that the fact that the state complies with federal laws regarding reimbursement for studies, and that if you find a job within 12 months of training, you may be eligible for full or partial reimbursement of the cost of your studies, and it’s clear why this is a popular career choice at the moment.
