Have you always wanted to teach Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA’s) but not sure where to start? Then this course is for you!
This five-day course for registered nurses is designed to train you on becoming a certified nurse assistant instructor in Illinois. This course is approved by the Illinois Department of Public Health. Successful completion of this course will qualify RN’s to develop and teach the Basic Nursing Assistant Training Program. The course includes the required four-hour lecture on Alzheimer’s Disease. In addition, our program offers the IDPH Approved Evaluator Workshop. Meeting the minimum clinical workshop requirements (which includes correct skills demonstrations and testing) is necessary for course participants to become approved evaluators and be able to TEST the CNA students’ manual skill competency.
For theory completion of this course, each participant is also required to prepare and deliver a brief teaching presentation. You may wish to bring a laptop or flash drive for preparing your presentation, but it is not required.
If you have access to a CNA teaching manual, please bring it with you. You will also need to bring writing materials (pen, pencil, paper) as well as a highlighter. Conference room temperatures are difficult to regulate, therefore, please wear appropriate attire, especially if you tend to be cold.
