 Basic Nursing Assistant Training Program

Patricia Rayborn, PhD(c), MSN, MBA/HCM, Associate Dean of Nursing
 
 
Update: Basic Nursing Assistant informational sessions are being held virtually.       
The Basic Nursing Assistant program must remain compliant with the Illinois Department of Public Health guidelines. As a result, classes for Spring 2021 1R8 and 2R8 have been postponed.    

Due to clinical limitations resulting from COVID19, current BNA students will not be able to successfully complete all required components of the program/course at this time. There is a need to support those students who were unsuccessful in completing clinical hours due to the pandemic.    

 In the meantime, we do encourage you to explore the other spring program offerings at Malcolm X College at www.ccc.edu. Please continue to check the website for additional updates.      

           
Credit Certificate                                                  
Students are introduced to the discipline of nursing and the basic approaches to patient care. The role of the CNA as an assistant to the licensed nurse and member of the healthcare team is studied and practiced in the classroom, simulation laboratory, and clinical setting. Upon successful completion of all components of the program, the graduate must pass the State's competency exam to become recognized as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) in the State of Illinois.

Classes
Five program offerings are scheduled each year – two in the spring and fall, one during the summer. Students are responsible for completing the required theory and clinical hours. Theory class is held 3-4 days per week (M-Th) for 5.5 hours each day completed by a scheduled minimum of 40 clinical hours by program end, at an external clinical site. Classes are held at both our campuses, main -MXC, 1900 W Jackson and– West Side Learning Center, 4624 W Madison Street.
