How Does It Work?

NextStep provides tuition-free Nursing Assistant training to individuals looking for a new, rewarding career and then places them in full-time CNA jobs with respected employers who have critical staffing shortages. Everyone wins! 

A Rewarding Career that Matters

Becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) benefits you and those you’ll care for. As a CNA, you’ll make sure your client’s needs are met during a vulnerable time in their lives and acquire skills and experience that will boost your career.

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!
