Who are CNAs?

The NTSOC CNA School is currently not accepting new applications and has temporarily suspended enrollment for new students. Please check this site periodically to receive updated information.

CNAs are a core part of the healthcare team, the hands-on caregivers that provide patient assistance, support, and dignity when they are temporarily ill or permanently in need of assistance. It is a very fulfilling job for a person who enjoys helping people and doing meaningful work.

The “traditional NTSOC CNA school” has an unparalleled reputation in southern Colorado, and often recruiters tell us they like to hire graduates of our program as they do not require shadowing. Over the years, we have received feedback from our students that a new era requires a new model of learning. We acted on this advice by putting forth the highest quality programming available. Our talented team of CNA Instructors has come together to teach about caring for people in need while stressing compassion and by using a “whole human” approach, all in the comfort of your home. Pull up a chair, get comfortable, and get ready to learn.

Place your future in trusted hands.

Highlights of our program include:

CNAs give our loved ones essential care and emotional support. Since CNAs see their patients every day, they are a vital link in providing updates to doctors and nurses. CNAs are trained to perform personal care activities such as bathing, hair care, oral hygiene, and assisting with dressing. They can facilitate simple exercises and transfers. Our CNAs also help with therapy programs when instructed. Our instructors stress the importance of providing your loved ones with care and empathy.

While carefully monitoring the health of your loved one, our CNAs are trained to report any changes in condition. Also, while working closely with families, they provide emotional support and offer new avenues to socialization during home visits.
