Conover, NC – Carolina Caring is leading the way in healthcare innovation by offering a creative solution to a nationwide problem — the shortage of Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) to care for the rapidly aging Baby Boomer generation. In response to this staffing crisis, the serious illness care provider’s Center for Leadership & Learning has launched a state-approved CNA Training Program designed to provide expert education and immediate job placement.
The nine-week training is held at the nonprofit organization’s Newton campus, 3975 Robinson Road, and taught by licensed nursing instructors, who prepare students for the demanding North Carolina CNA certification test. Students are paid during their training and those who successfully complete the program and earn their certifications are then offered positions with Carolina Caring. Since the program launched in March, 8 students have successfully completed the program and were hired as permanent staff.
If you or someone you know dreams of starting a career in healthcare, but you don’t know where to start, apply to the Carolina Caring CNA Training Program by calling 828.466.0466. The next session will be starting in August of 2023.
