You will be subject to a criminal background check by the nursing facility contracted with PAL C.N.A. Training Academy for clinical requirements. Because of the serious nature of the following offenses and close relationship to the type of work being performed, the following offenses by any court in the State of Arkansas or any similar offense by a court of another state or federal court, whether or not the record of the offense is expunged, pardoned, or otherwise sealed, shall result in permanent disqualification from future employment as a CNA and from attending PAL C.N.A. Training Academy:

  • Capital murder 

  • Murder in the first or second degree.

  • Kidnapping

Please be aware that this list does not encompass all potential disqualifying charges for enrollment in our classes. If, after reviewing the provided list, you remain uncertain about your eligibility, it is imperative to reach out to Headmaster for clarification. Failure to do so may lead to the student's removal from classes and the forfeiture of any non-refundable fees.

Prospective candidates are required to submit recent results of a negative TB skin test or chest x-ray, obtained within the past year, as a prerequisite for acceptance into the C.N.A. program. Additionally, proof of a flu shot is mandatory. Negative test results must be submitted to the school prior to the start of clinical activities.

Applicants must pay tuition and class fees upon enrollment, or have made arrangements with the program director for a payment plan. If at any time a payment does not clear the bank, the student will not be allowed to continue the program and will have to make arrangements with the program director to make-up course work.
