Certified Nursing Assistant Trainee

What You Will Learn

In our training program, you will learn how to care for our residents including but not limited to: bathing, dressing, grooming, and toileting, feeding, and transferring (lifting our residents using proper body mechanics as well as some of our mechanical lifts).

You will also learn range of motion (exercising our residents' muscles), to take temperatures, pulses, and respiration, to perform skin care and catheter care, to weigh and measure a person in bed, to make an occupied and an unoccupied bed, and to clean and store some of our equipment.

Other skills that will be taught include Resident Rights, Safety, Infection Control, Communication and Comfort. You will learn all of these skills in the classroom and then practice them on the clinical days, supervised by our RN In-service Educator and our clinical supervisory staff.

 Physical requirements of the job include lifting, pushing, pulling, twisting, bending and standing. At least 80% of your workday will be spent using these skills.

Once the training is complete, we will schedule you for the State clinical and written exams, which are given on-site and paid for by St. Luke. You will be evaluated on clinical skills and administered a New York State written exam - which is 60 multiple choice questions. The State will notify you by mail whether you have passed or failed.
