career as an LNA

LNA class begins October 5th — Register Today!

If you are a compassionate person who likes to help others and solve problems, consider becoming a Licensed Nursing Assistant (LNA), one of the most highly sought after jobs in healthcare. Nursing Assistants (LNAs) are valued members of any medical team and heavily relied upon on an everyday basis.  They help to ensure that all patients are cared for and contribute to the medical team’s ability to keep the day running smoothly. LNAs work in a variety of settings, including rehabilitation centers, long-term residential care facilities, and adult daycare centers, as well as inpatient hospitals and outpatient clinics.

Some of the common responsibilities of LNAs include:

  • Answering patient calls
  • Assisting patients with ambulation and movement, including range of motion, turning, positioning, and transferring
  • Emotional support
  • Taking vital signs and documenting according to protocol
  • Assisting patients with personal care, including bathing, combing hair, shaving, and brushing teeth
  • Feeding patients, including carefully measuring and documenting intake
  • Collecting supplies for the nurse or doctor

The LNA program consists of 106 hours of class and training and prepares you for an essential role in the day-to-day functions of nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, and hospitals.

The theory and lab classes will be held at Lakes Region Community College. Students will gain hands-on, real-world experience during their clinical training period, which is arranged at a local health care facility as part of this training program.


Once you complete the program, you’ll be given the opportunity to sit for the Licensed Nursing Assistant Competency Exam.
