Graduate Opportunities

About 220,200 openings for nursing assistants are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.

As the baby-boom population ages, nursing assistants will be needed to help care for an increasing number of older people who have chronic or progressive diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes.

Course Descriptions


The Mission of our CNA program is to provide quality education and practical training to people desiring a new entry-level job or career in this healthcare profession. Our CNA program forms the basis for continuing educational and career opportunities into the Nursing Program or Pre-PA programs.

Basic Nursing Assistants are entry-level professionals who work in a variety of healthcare settings under the direction of a licensed nurse. They play a crucial role in direct patient care such as assisting with personal hygiene and grooming, mobility, nutritional and elimination needs, and comfort activities.

The role of a CNA includes assessment and care planning, taking patient vital signs, collecting specimens, recording and reporting observations, maintaining safety and environmental cleanliness, transporting residents, and assisting with special procedures. CNAs are employed in hospitals, clinics, long-term care facilities, retirement/assisted living facilities, adult family homes, and in-home health care.

For the convenience of our students, the CNA program is a self-paced hybrid online course. The program consists of on-line learning that involves real-life scenarios with practice test questions to facilitate understanding and learning of the material.

The second portion includes hours that involve skills and supervised practical training in our lab or at a nursing home facility completed under the supervision of an instructor. In order to obtain a CNA certificate through Loving Lotus, students must complete a minimum of 75 hours and pass all coursework with a “C” average (75%) or above.

Students must also achieve satisfactory completion of clinical skills. All course work must be completed prior to attending the in-person skills training portion of class. To become a Certified Nursing Assistant, students must successfully pass the written and skills portions of the state exam.


Our mission with our CPR course is to teach a wide variety of healthcare professionals how to identify life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR, use an AED, and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.
This program is approved by the American Heart Association for Healthcare Workers. Most employers recommend this certification.
