Nazareth Home Offers Free Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Training Program

If this year has taught the world anything, it is the power of health care. Now more than ever, the country and Louisville need kind, supportive individuals who are willing to step up and provide care to those in need. Nazareth Home has a long history of delivering compassionate person-centered care to the elderly and their families. This year, when most of the elderly population has had to distance from their loved ones, the relationships built between elders and Nazareth Home caregivers are incredibly essential. 

With all of this in mind, now is a great time to think about a career as a CNA. Nazareth Home offers free (CNA) training to anyone interested in providing personal care to our elderly community. This program is an excellent opportunity for current Nazareth Home employees or anyone who would like to further their education and move toward a nursing career.

For those interested in becoming a CNA, the Nazareth training program is five weeks long and offered quarterly. Those in the program will receive hands-on clinical training with a nurturing instructor and will also work from online course materials such as virtual lectures, skills videos and practice tests. This program will earn participants three college credits and allow them to build more meaningful relationships with co-workers and Nazareth Home elders.

Once fully trained, those in a CNA position will assist a registered nurse (RN) or licensed practical nurse (LPN) with elder care. A CNA with Nazareth Home will handle various responsibilities including, but not limited to, bathing, dressing and any other necessary activities involved in daily life. You can learn more about the benefits of becoming a CNA at Nazareth Home at nazhome.org/careers.

Amid a year that has unfortunately left many struggling, this program is a great way to quickly experience new mobility and pay it forward to a community in need of compassionate, quality care. 

Interested parties should desire to serve and care for elders, hold a high school diploma or general education diploma (GED), and have the flexibility to work some evenings, nights and weekends. For more information, please contact Jenny Faught at 502-313-6150 or jfaught@nazhome.org.
