CNA 1

Start your nursing journey - comprehensive training for aspiring nurses.

The primary objective of the CNA 1 program is to provide students with the hands-on training necessary to offer high-quality care to patients while working alongside other qualified healthcare professionals.

Course offerings include training in skilled nursing facilities. Students divide their time between classroom and laboratory instructions.

This course will prepare students to sit for the North Carolina State Boards Exam. Students who are successful in the exam will become certified through the state of North Carolina. (It is the responsibility of the student to pay for any exams.)

Listing on Nurse Aide I registry

The NA I in North Carolina is regulated and listed on the Nurse Aide I Registry by the state Division of Health Services Regulation, which is part of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. To become listed as a Nurse Aide I, federal regulations require that all candidates pass a state competency exam that consists of both a written and skills exam.

  • The State Exam has two parts: 70-question, computer-based exam and five skills.
  • Registration for the State Exam is done by online registration at least 12 days prior to the exam date. Payment will be in the form of a debit or credit card paid to Credentia, which administers the test.
  • The exam cost is $140 and is separate from NA I tuition.
  • Those who have successfully completed the exam will be listed as a Nurse Aid I on the North Carolina Nurse Aide Registry.
