From Students

Thank you so much for the wonderful training in the ccCNA class. I got a job right away, working for a home health agency in Tooele. I hope things continue to go great guns for you. My daughter & niece & Bishop, will likely be taking your class soon
The instructors at ccCNA really cared about how I did. They always explained things to me in a way I could understand and they never stopped smiling. I really enjoyed going to class!
ccCNA started me on the path to becoming a nurse. Right now I am working for IHC as a nursing assistant. I am enrolled in their RN training program. ccCNA started me on my career path to become a nurse. They are awesome!
Taken the CNA classes is the best thing that I had done. I have to admit that was really hard for my, because English is my second idiom, and I only have a couple of years living here en US. I only want to express thanks and that I am grateful with you and your staff.
I just received my CNA license so thank you Carol and Claudia. I went to Orem Mountain Land and the Skills lady there asked where I took my CNA training and I told her ccCNA and she said, "Wow all the students I have had from there are always prepared and always pass". You two are great!
I had a great experience at ccCNA. The instructors are very knowledgeable and took the time out to answer any questions that I had. I would recommend this program to anyone who is looking for a Certified Nursing Assistant program. The class flexibility allowed me to attend in the evenings so I could care for my baby in the day.
I am now an RN who appreciates her start at ccCNA. I just had my 50th birthday this month and am about to start a new career and hope to gain the passion and knowlege that both of you have in nursing. Thanks for being a good role model for me and a for providing a good foundation for my nursing career.
I truly enjoyed what I learned in your class and really enjoyed my clinicals. As we met at the end of each clinical and discussed the day I really felt happy to have been there. I have learned that there are many times that we have to look beyond the skill that we have just completed and look forward to helping the patient as much as we can to make sure that they are completely comfortable. I admire you and Claudia for what you are doing and feel that your teaching makes the health industry a better place to be. Thank you for that!
My experience with ccCNA was well beyond my expectations. I was impressed with the blend of high-quality instruction and lively interaction I encountered in the classroom. Carol and Claudia provided an exceptional classroom experience that was filled with humor, practical application, interactive learning opportunities, good advice, and out-of-classroom communication between student and instructor. I quickly secured a CNA position with IHC's flagship facility, in the Surgical Transplant Unit. I am elated by this incredible opportunity, and look forward to a long, successful career as a healthcare professional!

From Others

Without doubt, ccCNA is one of the finest training providers in Utah! They provide their students with all the information and hands on practice they need to successfully achieve their nursing assistant certificates.
Carol and Claudia have created a unique teaching environment where individual learning styles and needs are acknowledged and, indeed, encouraged. Carol and Claudia care deeply about their students. Time and again, youth from the YES program have mentioned how patient and friendly Carol and Claudia are, and how much they enjoyed going to class.
