5 of 5 CNA February 8, 2019
Reviewer: Yadira Limon Franco from 95307  
The CNA course is a great course where I have learned a lot. Doing clinical and theory is a good combination to learn and practice all the skills. Once you get to work with the residents it's a great experience because you know you are making a difference. I would recommend this course.
