Clinicals: A clinical rotation allows a student to ‘shadow’ a working CNA in a long term care facility for the purposes of ‘practicing’ what you have learned on a real patient. This is considered part of your training and the state requires all CNAs to have completed 24 hours of clinical rotation time. Clinical hours are scheduled for you by Utah CNA Centers. Read more about Clinicals.
Attendance: The Utah Nurse Assistant Registry (UNAR) requires CNA students to attend a minimum of 100 hours of a CNA program. Of those 100 hours, 24 are required to be spent in a clinical rotation, so that leaves 76 hours of time that is spent in class. The UNAR does not allow anyone to become a CNA unless exactly 100 hours are completed. If you miss class or clinicals, even one minute of time, you will be required to make it up or you will not be able to sit for your exams and become a CNA. We enable you to sit in on other classes to make up missed time, but there is a limit to how much you can time you can make up.
Only 8 hours can be made up – if you miss more than one full day or two evening classes, you will be dropped from the program and have to repeat it from the beginning. This also means that you would have to repay the entire tuition. If you have obligations that may cause you to miss class time, be thorough in selecting a class schedule where you will miss a minimum amount of time. If you know that you will miss more than 8 hours of class time, contact our admin office before registering for a class. Read more about Attendance.
State Exams: Students who complete this program are eligible to sit for the State of Utah exams (written and practical). These exams are not offered by the school and payment for the exams is made to the UNAR and not the school. The fees for these exams total $75.
