Education and Training
If your goal is to become a Certified Nurse Aide, take the first step by submitting your application to our four week Nurse Aide Education Program. You'll learn valuable skills that could put you to work right away in our Lifelong Health and Aging Related Services division.
Riverside Lifelong Health and Aging Related Services offers a Nurse Aide Education Program that combines written and clinical instruction in nursing theory and practices. In addition to training students as a Nurse Aide, the curriculum is designed to introduce the student to many disciplines present in Lifelong Health.
The four week course provides for approximately 79 hours of classroom instruction and 46 hours of clinical experience at a Riverside facility. Classes are held Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm for the first two weeks, and the second two weeks provide clinical instruction from 7:30 am to 2:30 pm.
We are looking for candidates that desire to become a healthcare professional and are committed to improving the quality of life for our residents. We receive many applications for each class and can only select up to 10 students per training session. For more information, view our 2-page flyer.
