Certified nursing assistants (CNAs), also known as nurse aides or nursing assistants, play an important role in the patient care team. CNAs are responsible for helping patients with their daily activities, such as dressing, bathing and personal hygiene, taking vital signs, and sanitizing patient rooms. CNAs work under the supervision of licensed practical nurses and/or registered nurses, and many CNAs advance their careers and eventually take on senior nursing roles. Nursing assistant training programs are relatively quick to complete, making this an excellent entry point to a career in nursing. In Michigan, CNAs earn a mean annual salary of $33,790, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.


Choosing the Best CNA Programs in Michigan

The first step in becoming a CNA in Michigan is completing a state-approved nursing assistant training program. CNA training programs are offered at many community colleges, technical schools, nursing homes, medical facilities across the state, and some high schools. For more information about admissions requirements for CNA programs in Michigan, please visit our CNA Training Programs Admissions page.

  • Program Length: CNA training programs vary in length and generally take between 4 and 12 weeks to complete. Some programs take as little as three weeks to finish. CNA training programs include a combination of classroom instruction, laboratory instruction, and hands-on clinical practice under the supervision of an LPN or RN.
  • Program Cost: The cost of CNA training varies from school to school. When researching the cost of a CNA training program, consider tuition, lab and/or school fees, textbooks, uniforms, certification exam fees, TB testing, and a criminal background check.
  • Online/In-Person Options: Many students prefer the convenience and flexibility of online programs. More and more schools are offering this option for the didactic portion of the CNA program. The hands-on clinical portion of the program will still take place in person, even if your school offers online learning options. Traditional on-campus programs are always available for those who prefer a more collaborative learning experience.
