Oneida Health Provides Exceptional CNA Training
Oneida Health’s Extended Care Facility, in collaboration with Madison-Oneida BOCES, periodically offers training for individuals to become a Certified Nursing Assistant. The training combines classroom instruction and hands-on sessions designed to prepare the individual to provide personal care to residents in nursing homes. The training is 4 weeks in length and involves 5 full days of training per week and attendance is required every day throughout the program. Classes are generally held quarterly throughout the year.
At the end of the training program individuals take a written certification exam. Once certified, individuals may begin working as Certified Nursing Assistants in residential care facilities.
Qualified applicants must have either a high school diploma or completed GED and possess no previous criminal history as per federal regulations.
