This is a PAID training class with classroom and clinical hours on a day shift schedule. Training is accelerated and lasts approximately 6 weeks with rotating weekends for On-the-Job Training. Full participation is required.
Classes are held at our state-of-the-art Employment, Education and Enrichment (EEE) Center and James River Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Newport News, Virginia. Hours may vary between 6:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Upon successful completion of the training class, you will be placed in one of our facilities as a full-time Certified Nurse Aide on one of three shifts. You will be asked your preference on facility location/shift prior to program graduation, and we will do our best to accommodate your preferences. Virginia Health Services will also cover the costs associated with registering for the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program exam for state Nurse Aide certification.
The Earn-As-You-Learn program is available at no cost to you with a 12-month education agreement.
