Overview

Cincinnati State’s State Tested Nurse Aide (STNA) training program provides the skills needed to care for residents in a long–term care facility. Students practice skills in a simulated lab and then apply learned skills during clinical rotation, all under the guidance from Registered Nurse (RN) instructors. Nurse Aide training is part of the Nursing career pathway, and students may progress toward their LPN and RN certifications.
