Nursing Assistant Training in Clearwater

Study to work alongside a nurse and provide essential patient care.

So much goes into compassionate patient care, and nursing assistants are part of providing that care. Their duties range from helping patients clean and dress themselves to taking vital signs and providing comfort and companionship. If you’ve ever wanted to work with patients to help meet their needs—both large and small—then training to be a nursing assistant could be perfect for you.

UMA’s Nursing Assistant program includes a 45-hour unpaid externship under supervision in a medical office or clinic. During this time, you’ll get real-world, hands-on training. It’s a great way to learn the practical skills necessary for a career as a nursing assistant. Our Nursing Assistant program also provides preparation for the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) exam which is required to work in this field.
