The Right Choice
CVTC and local high schools have partnered to offer incoming high school juniors and seniors who are interested in pursuing a career in healthcare an opportunity to earn high school and college credit. Dual credit academies give high school students a chance to navigate their interests and career options to develop the most successful individualized career path. Credits earned through this academy may be applied to CVTC's technical degree programs and transfer to other universities. By successfully completing this course and passing the CNA Certification Test (written and skills), students will have the credential to work as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).
Students will prepare for the Wisconsin Certification exam. The nursing assistant course is a prerequisite for many associate degree health programs. There are many jobs opportunities for CNAs.
Lecture/Lab (Online): Monday, October 25 – Friday, December 10, 2021; M-F 8 a.m. - 10 a.m.Note: Students may be required to watch videos related to the course content outside of scheduled class periods.
State Attendance RequirementStudents are allowed to miss two classes, but are required to make up the missed time. Failure to make up missed time will result in course failure. If a third class or clinical session is missed, the student will fail the course. Clinical time must be made up at the clinical site, and not with a written assignment. Students may attend a lecture, lab or clinical session with another instructor to avoid grading deductions. Students are responsible to coordinate make up times with their instructor. In case of documented illness or emergency, a waiver may be granted.
