The Manhattan Institute offers a 2-part Certified Nurse Assistant training program:
CNA Training Program Part 1:
The first part of our certified nurse assistant training takes place in the classroom. During classroom training, students will learn all aspects of patient care, through lectures, audio video, and hands-on demonstrations.
CNA Training Program Part 2:
Upon completion of the classroom training, students will begin the second part of the class which consists of clinical training. During clinical training students will work directly with patients in a health care facility. You will be supervised by a Registered Nurse, who is a staff member of our school, and is also licensed by the New York State Education Department as a Primary Nurse Assistant Instructor.
Each Registered Nurse Instructor will never have more than 10 students, ensuring that each student gets the personalized instruction they need. During your externship you will work side by side with other aides, nurse and medical professionals and will learn what working as a certified nurse assistant really entails.
CNA Certification Exam:
When you finish with your clinical training you will be ready to take your certifying exam. Our school is a New York State Testing Center, so you take the State Exam in our school. Students feel very comfortable being tested where they have studied.

There is a wide range of career opportunities for CNA graduates. Most will work in nursing homes, hospitals, mental health facilities, assisted living facilities, long-term care facilities, and private homes.
