A State Nurse Aide Certification card or LCSC substitution validation obtained through completing a skills only course or passing a skills challenge test is required for entry into the BSN and PN programs. CNA Certifications from other states meet criteria.
Students holding a certification in some health-related fields may qualify for LCSC substitution validation of skills through a challenge exam. Advisors at Workforce Training can provide full details and assess your eligibility or see their website for details.
Students who have an expired CNA certification or who wish to petition for certification must contact the state certification board.
Available online plus on-site clinicals may be arranged through LCSC. To locate a CNA course, contact LCSC Workforce Training or a provider in your area.
