CNA Training Programs in California

While CNA training programs abound all over the country, states like California tend to have a higher number of opportunities because of their dense population. Where some states may only offer a few hundred locations for training, you can easily find that number in Southern California alone. In fact, one of Southern California County has well over 100 opportunities for CNA training scattered among hospitals, nursing homes, home health aide companies, community colleges, universities, and private nursing schools.

CNA trainee in California requires a minimum 150 hours of instruction. Of that 150 hours, 50 is spent in theoretical classroom training while the remaining 100 hours are spent doing hands-on training with mannequins and live patients. Once the training is complete the student will take a state nursing board examination which will result in licensure if he or she passes.
