The nurse aide training program prepares students to obtain state certification as a certified nursing assistant (CNA).

The medical assistant program prepares learners to obtain national certification as a certified medical assistant (CMA). Medical assistants are multi-skilled allied healthcare professionals who complete a blend of administrative and clinical duties under the supervision of licensed nurses and physicians. Medical assistants take vital signs, schedule appointments, collect specimens, obtain patients’ histories, communicate with insurance companies, and so much more.

Medical assistants secure employment at hospitals, clinics, doctors offices, multi-specialty practices, extended care facilities, health insurance companies, schools and other types of settings that offer healthcare services. Employment of medical assistants is expected to increase by 23 percent through the year 2028, which is much faster than the average for all occupations according to the United States Bureau for Labor Statistics.

Population growth will continue to increase demand in the medical field. This increased demand results in continual job openings for allied healthcare workers such as CNAs, phlebotomy technicians and medical assistants.
