CNA Training in Kansas

See our list of approved CNA programs in Kansas to earn your CNA certification

With the economy struggling to recover it can be difficult to find stable career positions. One of the strongest sectors in today’s economy is health care, and one of the most in-demand poisitions within that field is for certified nursing assistants (CNAs). The outlook for the entire industry predicts a 62% increase over the next decade and a 21% increase by the year 2014. Kansas is currently experiencing a shortage of well-trained, qualified CNAs and the future promises excellent job prospects as many current CNAs enter retirement and the aging population in America grows to provide more patients in need of care.

A CNA can expect to find employment in area hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, home care situations and private doctors offices. The job requires hands on care of patients to help increase their recovery efforts. One can expect to perform such duties as taking vital signs, administering medication, helping the patient with personal needs like grooming, walking, and delivering messages to the doctor on behalf of the patient.

The CNA is vital to the smooth operation of the facility and may be seen changing beds, doing light cleaning, and helping the other nurses monitor the patient’s progress. Becoming a CNA is an easy process that will require a very short period of time to complete.

To obtain a CNA certification in Kansas there are a couple options. You can go the traditional route and enroll in any of the multiple Technical Colleges, Community Colleges, or Universities that offer qualified CNA education programs. The course work will include a minimum of 90 credit hours that are divided between classroom learning and hands-on clinical training. Among the courses in the program are Roles and Responsibilities of a CNA, Infection Prevention and Control, Nutrition and Fluids, and End of Life Care. The clinical portion of the training will include Observing, Reporting, and Documenting health changes, taking vital signs, addressing patient’s family’s needs, as well as many other clinical skills. The other option is a hospital based training program where you are taught as you work.

The cost for the training is approximately $500 depending on where you take classes. You can apply for financial aid to help pay some or all of the cost. Once you have completed the program and passed the test you may also apply to the state and in some cases have your tuition refunded.

The salary can vary widely between areas of the state but $24,000 per year is average. As you gain experience and skills you can expect to surpass the average considerably. Jobs are plentiful due to the present shortage of qualified CNAs and will continue to grow well into the future.
