Nursing is a profession that draws on the most elemental way human beings can relate – by providing direct physical care to one another. Fortunately, for those interested in a career in nursing, there are many roles related to the nursing profession. One of these is the nursing assistant role.

Nursing assistants provide patients help with daily living and bedside care. In Arizona, nursing assistants must first complete an accredited training program before taking state certification exams to become licensed as a certified nursing assistant (CNA). Most of these programs are relatively short, ranging from several weeks to a few months in length. They are offered at a variety of institutions throughout the state, including Mesa Community College, Pima Medical Institute, and Brookline College. Moreover, free training to become a CNA is available at several institutions in Arizona.
