Have you ever thought about becoming a CNA? CNA


If you are seeking a challenging and rewarding career in the medical field, this course will provide you with the skills and experience to be Maine State Certified as a Nursing Assistant. Nurse’s aide skills will be taught in an interactive classroom setting, and a two-week clinical experience will follow. The course will focus on nursing theory and application, including basic anatomy & physiology, and clinical performance. Applicants are strongly encouraged to job shadow a CNA before interviewing.


Lewiston Adult Education's Certified Nursing Assistant course will meet Tuesdays & Thursdays from 4:00-9:00 pm, starting February 15th.


Students can only be admitted to the program after a successful interview with the instructor. Interviews will be held Tuesday and Wednesday, February 8th and 9th, at 4:00 pm.  All program applicants must also take the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS) before they can be interviewed. If you have not taken a CASAS test before, you can take the test prior to the interview at 3:00 pm here at Lewiston High School. If you have already taken the CASAS test, have your scores faxed to us at 795-4173 prior to the interview.
