College of Health Sciences

Certified Nursing Assistant

Students who enroll in the DSU Nurse Assistant Program earn college credit for CNA course work—no other program in the area can offer that advantage. Even high school students who are interested in pursuing a career in health sciences can sign up for our Concurrent Enrollment courses and earn college credits while fulfilling high school requirements.

We train students to work in long term care facilities, home health care, hospital settings, and to continue in nursing education. The curriculum includes lab instruction in a state of the art nursing laboratory, traditional classroom instruction, and hands-on clinical experiences at various long term care facilities in the area.

Successful completion of the program enables students to take the Utah State Nurse Assistant certification exam to become a CNA. Our program instructors are qualified, caring individuals devoted to students’ success. Our students have a 98% pass rate for state certification exams (UNAR).
