If you are interested in applying for these CNA Training Classes, we are holding informational meetings on Feb. 11th and Feb. 18th in the chapel at Saint Elizabeth Home, One Saint Elizabeth Way, East Greenwich, RI 02818.

Saint Elizabeth Home, East Greenwich, and Saint Elizabeth Manor, Bristol, conduct training courses to prepare individuals to become Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA). CNA's are the primary caregivers to the elderly and individuals with chronic illness who reside in our nursing homes. They are responsible for assisting with personal hygiene, feeding, transporting, and documenting changes in the residents’ conditions. These courses are offered periodically throughout the year at no cost to interested individuals.
The course consists of classroom work and clinical experience. Course instructors work with students as mentors and tutors to prepare them for the state certification exam.
This training course is an excellent opportunity for individuals to gain the confidence and skills they need to begin a career in the health care field. Many of the CNA's currently employed at our residences began as trainees through this program.
