Nursing Assistant Certificate

The Nursing Assistant Certificate course prepares you to assist others with personal care needs and become a caring, compassionate nursing assistant.  

This certificate course is approved by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and prepares students to take the National Nursing Assistant Training and Competency Evaluation Test.   

After you finish the nursing assistant program and successfully complete the test, you are placed on the Minnesota Nursing Assistant Registry (NA/R).

What can I do with a Nursing Assistant Certificate?

Employment is primarily in facilities caring for older adults such as long-term care facilities. As a nursing assistant, you’ll provide care under direct supervision of licensed nurses.  

The skills you gain through our nursing assistant program will be in high demand, as nursing assistant roles continue to grow along with the aging population.  

Normandale offers the best nursing assistant certificate program in Minnesota.
