Certified Nursing Assistant
Certified Nursing Assistants are a vital part of the HAMC healthcare team.

CNA Training Program

CNAs work as frontline caregivers in a variety of settings. They assist individuals with eating, toileting, dressing, and other daily needs. They transfer people in and out of bed, help them sit or recline comfortably, and help prevent falls.

Many who complete the CNA program work in Heart of America Long Term Care, Haaland Estates Basic Care or the Heart of America Medical Center.

Path to CNA certification and employment
1) Be at least 16 years old and able to lift 50 pounds
2) Apply for and be accepted for employment by Good Samaritan Hospital Association
3) Complete HAMC's 80-hour CNA course
4) Take and pass certification exam administered at Heart of America Medical Center
5) Begin working part time or full time, with benefits

If you are hired for employment by HAMC, there is no charge for the CNA course or state certification exam. Cost for non-employees is $1,000. Classes are offered on a monthly basis, as needed. For more information, email Rebecca Hershey, RN, at rhershey@hamc.com or call 701-776-5261 ext. 2259.
