When most people think about CNA training, they think of the classroom work, the lab work, and the two-part exam at the end. What they fail to think about is the clinical part of the course, the part where you actually go out into the world and do what you’ve been learning how to do.
The clinical part of your CNA training will be under the direct supervision of your CNA training instructor, as well as other professionals within the facility you perform your clinicals. They could be in a hospital, nursing home, or even an adult care facility, depending on the available resources in your area.
This portion of your CNA training will be important, as it shows your instructor what you’ve learned and whether you’re ready to put in into action. Passing this portion of the course requires a lot of effort on your part, and close attention to details.
