Delaware County's Premiere Long-Term Care Facility

CNA Nurse Aid Training Program

The CNA Training Program is a free training program sponsored by Fair Acres Geriatric Center for the preparation and training of potential employees interested in becoming Nursing Assistants. In order to be considered for the program, a person must be 18 years of age, and successfully complete the pre-employment application process, which includes a formal written application, a test of reading rate and comprehension; safety and practical thinking questions; state and federal police clearances; a physical examination; and Tuberculosis testing. Until all these steps are completed and cleared, students will not be permitted to start their training in the CNA Training Program. Completion of the program is not a guarantee of employment at Fair Acres.

The program is approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and lasts 120 hours, or about 4 weeks. It includes classroom instruction, skills lab and clinical hours. Classes are held daily from 7am to 3pm, Monday through Friday. Daily attendance and punctuality is mandatory and any absence or lateness is reason for dismissal from the program. Once completed, a student may be offered employment at Fair Acres.

The CNA Training Program also prepares the student for the American Red Cross Certification Test. This test consists of both a written and a clinical skills exam, and successful results will enroll the candidate in the Pennsylvania Nurse Aide Registry.
