PAL Certified Nursing Assistant Training Academy is dedicated to providing specialized training to Arkansas residents. In reality, CNA training involves learning a number of skills that you have to be competent with in order to provide patient care.  You also have to be grounded in nursing theory in order to understand why you are providing the care in the way that you are trained.  This program will provide you optimum classroom instruction and dedicated skills lab training so you can be competent in your care and pass the state’s CNA certification exam.


CNA certification is required before acceptance into most undergraduate nursing programs in the state of Arkansas.  Students may choose to work through nursing school in order to build confidence in their nursing skills.  This program will provide you the training needed in order to meet requirements for entry into nursing programs, and to gain employment as a CNA while attending nursing school.  


So whether you are a high school graduate looking to quickly enter the work force, someone who is interested in a career change, or someone who is inspiring to become a CNA, this training can bring a very promising career.  It may also propel you to the next phase of your career such as training to become a licensed practical nurse (LPN) or a registered nurse (RN).


PAL Certified Nursing Assistant Training Academy is licensed by the Arkansas State Board of Private Career Education.  This program is approved by the Arkansas Office of Long Term Care.
