One of the attractive aspects of a nursing career is the rapid path to employment. Nursing students need only two years to earn an associate’s degree in either registered nursing (RN) or licensed practical nursing (LPN). A certificate program to become a certified nursing assistant (CNA) is even shorter, just a few months in length. Montana’s vocational, career, and community colleges offer high-quality and affordable nursing programs for all three career paths. Below we profile several options in depth.

Highlands College of Montana Tech
Highlands College’s CNA certificate program is offered three times per year and can be completed in just one semester. Local healthcare employers like Bozeman Deaconess Hospital and Billings Clinic are constantly hiring new CNAs. The median annual income of a Montana CNA is $23,940.
