Los Angeles Job Corps

The Los Angeles Job Corps offers a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) training program, an ideal choice for individuals interested in the medical field and dedicated to helping others. If you thrive in hands-on, fast-paced environments, this program may be a perfect fit for you.

As a CNA trainee, you’ll gain practical experience in various aspects of patient care, including tasks such as cleaning and bathing patients, assisting with dressing and toileting, and transferring patients from beds to wheelchairs. Additionally, you’ll learn to measure vital signs like blood pressure and temperature, serve meals, and record patients’ health concerns for reporting to nursing and management staff.

Upon completing the Certified Nurse Assistant program, you’ll have numerous career options. CNA credentials open doors to employment opportunities in hospitals, senior living facilities, schools, clinics, home health care agencies, and more. Furthermore, this program serves as a prerequisite for Job Corps’ Advanced Training Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) program, paving the way for additional healthcare career opportunities.

Many individuals choose to further their education, pursuing credentials as licensed practical nurses (LPNs) or registered nurses (RNs) after completing the CNA program.

During the program, you will earn nationally recognized credentials, including a Certified Nurse Assistant license and certifications in BLS for Healthcare Providers and Heartsaver® Bloodborne Pathogens. It’s worth noting that students should also obtain a state-issued learner’s permit and driver’s license upon program completion.

To embark on this training journey, you’ll need to meet certain prerequisites, including having a high school diploma or equivalent (which can be earned at Job Corps centers), completing all introductory and career preparation courses, passing written and performance tests, and meeting academic requirements in math and reading. Additionally, you’ll need to comply with state-specific requirements, which may involve a criminal background check and completion of a training program meeting state content requirements.

At the Los Angeles Job Corps Center, dedicated staff are ready to assist you in meeting these requirements and ensuring you have the necessary tools and resources to kickstart your CNA training. This program provides a valuable opportunity to enter the healthcare field and make a positive impact on the lives of others.
