Nursing assistant training focuses on the role of the CNA in a skilled nursing facility. Didactic and clinical components focus primarily on skilled nursing care. The acute care CNA course focuses on broadening the CNA’s scope of knowledge and clinical experience to include skills required to work in an acute care setting (hospital). “This course covers the pathophysiology, treatment and nursing care of various disorders/diseases. It is helpful if you have already taken classes on these topics – biology, microbiology, medical terminology and anatomy.”
