CNA Programs in Arizona


With salaries ranging from around $17,000 to well over $30,000 per annum, and with the CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) field being a definite growth area in Arizona, it’s no wonder so many people are looking for CNA programs in Arizona.

Before you make a decision about whether this is the career for you, and book a course, however, there are a few things you should know about being a CNA in Arizona.

CNA Training in Arizona

Before you can become a CNA in Arizona, you need to complete an Arizona State Nursing Board approved nursing assistant program. This program comprises 120 hours of prescribed training, in a variety of competencies, ranging from basic first aid and patient care, to medical terminology and infection control.

Training covers both practical and theoretical knowledge, which means that when you have completed the course, you should be able to handle any CNA position that you choose.

It’s important to note that you can only work as a CNA in Arizona once you have completed a post training exam, but you can usually take that exam very soon after you have completed your training.

Where Can You Get CNA Training in Arizona?

Like many other states, there are a variety of CNA training options in Arizona. You could train at a college, a hospital or through an independent training company – just make sure whichever one you choose is state approved.

Most CNA training course are around 12 weeks long in Arizona, and while most employers won’t consider applicants who are not yet 18 years old, there are training programs that you can take while you are still in high school if you choose to. This is a particularly popular choice for people who are considering becoming state licensed nurses later on.

Where Can You Work As a CNA in Arizona?

Once you have completed your training, you will need to work under the supervision of an Registered Nurse (RN), or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), but there are several employment options.

You could work in a hospice, assisted living facilities, as a home carer, or in a hospital. There are also long term care facilities, clinics and other medical facilities that hire Certified Nursing Assistants in Arizona. There are facilities in every major city and town, so it’s entirely likely that once you complete your training, you can find work anywhere in the state.

Why Choose to Become a CNA?

If you’re wondering whether a CNA training program in Arizona is the right career choice for you, there are several issues you should consider.

Firstly, do you enjoy working with and helping people? Are you interested in the medical field? Are you looking for a career where minimal training can set you up for a relatively well paid job? If your answer is yes to all of those, then becoming a CNA in Arizona may well be a good choice for you, particularly since there are a growing number of employment opportunities in the field.
