Additional Course Requirements
The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) requires that students who enroll in the Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) course must provide evidence that they have completed the 8th grade or above. Evidence may include a high school diploma, a GED, or a transcript indicating completion of 8th grade or higher. The College requires students to complete the Compass placement test with a 60 or higher reading score.
Students enrolled in the CNA course must also complete a satisfactory background check (additional fee required), obtain a negative drug test and have a valid CPR Class C card. For an additional fee, CNA students are issued CPR Class C cards during the course.
