Turn your job into joy.

A friendly face, a shared laugh, a helping hand — these moments are all a part of life as a CNA. You'll interact with people from all walks of life who have incredible stories to tell. You'll discover that the care you give comes right back to you.

Choose a career you can count on.

The high demand for skilled nursing assistants makes this a career move that you can feel confident in. As a vital member of a health care team, you'll gain invaluable experience working with patients and make connections in the field.

What people are saying about us

Between managing both a full time student schedule and a job, I needed a CNA program that would fit my busy life, as well as properly train me for the career. NextStep not only gave me both, but also provided me with the support I needed to gain both the knowledge and confidence to become a CNA.

NextStep Graduate

Knowing that I've been home for 14 years and that this has given me an opportunity to come back into something that's relevant is huge... that's a great motivation to keep me going each day... to know I'm that much closer to being able to help support my family, [and] that much closer to seeing myself succeed at something that's just for me. It's just been great!
