BNA Traditional Program Update            
We will offer BNA course offerings on-campus starting Fall 2021. The normalcy of the on-campus course offerings will be guided by the CDC requirements.

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.
