Students who complete AH 154 (Certified Nurse Aide Training) will be eligible to take the certified nurse aide (CNA) examination in the State of Michigan. These students will be prepared for immediate employment in long-term care facilities, home health care, physicians' offices and hospitals. Students who complete North Central's Certificate of Development program (which includes AH 154) will be better prepared for advancement in the healthcare field. Classes other than AH 154 may be taken either in conjunction with CNA training or separately. CNA training includes classroom instruction, hands-on practice in a clinical laboratory, and clinical instruction in a long-term care facility. The CNA training class may be offered in both four-‐week and semester formats. Students will be required to meet immunization standards of the clinical facilities and will be subject to a criminal background check.
