Choosing the Best CNA Programs in Nevada

Aspiring nurse assistants must first complete a training program which usually lasts a couple of weeks. They must then sit for a certification exam, then register in the state of Nevada to be able to work as a CNA. For details on admission requirements for CNA programs, please visit our CNA Training Programs Admissions page.

There are a few considerations that prospective CNA students must take into account, as listed below:

  • Program Length: The exact length of time it will take to complete a CNA program in Nevada depends on the school. In Nevada, a minimum of 75 hours is required, with a portion of that mandatory clinical (hands-on) time. Courses are offered at community colleges as well as vocational schools and healthcare organizations.
  • Program Cost: Cost is definitely a consideration when selecting a CNA program. Depending on the program, the cost can vary widely. For example, in a quick program search, the program cost can range from $500 to $1,000 including school fees and supplies. Of course, students should always visit the school's website to determine specific tuition fees. Fortunately, many schools offer financial aid as well.
  • Board Approved Programs: It's crucial that prospective students visit their state's board of nursing or department of health services website to ensure a program is an approved one, otherwise it can affect licensing. Nevada's board of nursing provides a list of approved CNA programs on it's Board of Nursing's website. For more information, check out the CNA certification requirements for Nevada.
  • Online/In-Person Options: Selecting an online vs in-person CNA program is an individual choice. Some prefer the camaraderie between students in a face-to-face setting, and some prefer the flexibility of online learning. While there are online CNA programs available, prospective students should remember that most states, including Nevada, requires in-person, hands-on clinical training for licensure. In other words, the classroom portion can be completed online, but students are required to complete face-to-face training as well.
