CNA Training prepares students to pass the state of Rhode Island's CNA exam. Students receive seven weeks of classroom and hands-on instruction by a Registered Nurse, as well as CPR certification. Our Employment Specialists help the graduates find and keep their jobs – a critical step in their path towards independence.
The CNA training program at Crossroads Rhode Island is effective because:
- Students have access to wrap-around services to assist them in overcoming barriers to completing the program and/or securing employment;
- Employment skills are incorporated into the training. They include interviewing, job search and resume writing;
- Each session includes a Career Day that allows students to meet with prospective employers and learn about their application process, what they look for in an interview and what they expect of employees.
- Classes run Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. through 2:30 p.m.
