Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) or Licensed Nursing Assistants (LNAs) help more senior-level Registered Nurses by tending to basic patient care needs. Professional CNAs in Arizona earn $30,000 annually, or 30 percent more than the national average, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor. It's common for those entering the world of nursing or healthcare to begin their careers as CNAs.

Choosing the Best CNA Programs in Arizona

CNA education programs in Arizona are typically offered at vocational schools, technical training institutes, and junior and community colleges. The Phoenix area alone offers more than 15 programs and Tucson offers more than 7. Other training programs are offered throughout the state. To learn more about becoming a CNA, review our CNA Program Requirements Admissions.

  • Program Length: High in intensity and short in duration, most CNA education programs can be completed in as few as 3 to 8 weeks. Program length varies by institution. Both clinical and classroom experiences are required to successfully graduate from the program.
  • Program Cost: CNA programs in Arizona are affordably priced for most students. Some offer payment plans for those who are unable to pay program tuition in full. Be aware that tuition costs may or may not include administrative, technology, testing and lab fees.
  • AZ Board Approved Programs: Arizona maintains its own regulations regarding CNA certification. In order to obtain work as a CNA in the state, it is important to receive your certification from a program that is approved by the Arizona State Board of Nursing. Learn details about the certification process by checking out the CNA certification requirements in Arizona.
  • Online/In-Person Options: Because of the intensity and hands-on nature of nursing assistant work, most CNA training programs are only offered on campus. The vast majority of training institutes in Arizona offer day, evening and weekend course sessions to accommodate the needs of busy students.
