FVCC released the following information:

Flathead Valley Community College Certified Nurse Aid (CNA) class registration is on now. The next session of CNA class begins January 17 with two different sessions available. Through approximately four months in the classroom (or a blended option of in person and online), students are prepared to take the State of Montana certifying test and enter the workforce.

Through hands-on clinical training, the intensive course teaches the skills and applications required to address the needs of chronically-ill patients in long-term care facilities. Students also gain understanding of basic medical terminology, basic human anatomy and physiology, and the aging process.

Upon successful completion of the course and test, CNAs can move directly into a patient care position and are also well-poised to continue their education toward becoming a registered nurse.

Registration for the CNA class should be completed by December 15 and includes a required background check and immunizations, so anyone interested should begin the process as soon as possible. For more information and to begin the registration process, visit
