Training

GET STARTED

CNA training in Alaska
Training includes a total of 140 hours that includes both classroom/online and clinical/hands-on instruction. Scholarships are available to support training costs - be sure to ask each program about what is available.

There are 2 paths to complete training and become a CNA:

  • On-the-Job Training Programs

Many hospitals and nursing homes will hire you as a nurse aide and then provide free training. You can "earn and learn" by training while you work.
 

  • Nurse Aide Training Programs: Train Now, Work Later

You can also get training at a vocational training center or university that includes hands-on, or clinical, sessions at a hospital or nursing home. No employment commitment is required. You decide where you want to work after you have completed your training. Here is a list of state-approved training programs. 

Where to train:

The list below includes training programs at healthcare facilities (facility-based) and also training centers or colleges/universities (non-facility based). Reach out to each organization directly for more information about the programs they offer, costs, and details. Click on the blue Facility/Organization name to link to their website, or click on the blue Contact Name to email the facility contact. Looking for training in a specific community? Use the arrows next to "Location" in the top row of the chart to sort by city/town or enter a place name in the Search box at the top right of the chart.

The facilities with an asterisk (*) next to their name are participating in a state-funded CNA Earn & Learn Program to support training and certification costs.

For more information about getting trained or certified to be a CNA in Alaska, visit the Board of Nursing  website. If you need additional assistance, please contact:
