WHAT IS A Nursing Assistant?


Nursing Assistants (NA’s), also known as nurses aides, orderlies, and home health aides, work under the supervision of a nurse and provide assistance to individuals with daily living tasks.



The 30 day  program is 10 days of classes which are held: Monday – Friday : 8am – 4pm. Followed by working hands on at a Clinical Rotation site which are: Monday – Friday: 7:30am – 3:30pm

The training you receive at CMI includes, but is not limited to, bathing, feeding, dressing patients, observing physical and/or mental changes, and vitals. There are a total of 22 skills taught thru lecture, hands on training, and videos. Each skill is available online for you to review for the state exam.

Our Goal

The primary goal of Cordoba Medical Institute is to offer students programs that feature the necessary hands-on training to successfully work with other qualified healthcare professionals while simultaneously offering patients high-quality healthcare. We offer our courseware in skilled nursing facilities where students divide their time between classroom instruction and working at clinical rotation sites.

Our programs prepare students to sit for the California State Boards Exam, and upon successful completion of the examination, students become certified nursing assistants or licensed vocational nurses.
