Nothing, but words. CNA or Certified Nursing Assistant and NAC or Nursing Assistant, Certified are the same certification.
In most states, a certified nursing assistant will use the CNA designation. In Washington State, the designation is written as nursing assistant -certified or NAC.
Numerous local businesses are always looking for qualified nursing assistants. Jobs may be available at hospitals, doctors’ offices, clinics, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, adult family homes and home health agencies.
As a student of Caremark Clinical Education, we can help you on your path.
Courses to obtain your certificate can vary among programs. Caremark offers intensive courses that can move you through your coursework in approximately 3 weeks. We also offer more moderate-paced courses that take approximately 6 weeks to complete.
In Washington State, it is required that a combined minimum of 85 hours consisting of classroom time, skills labs and clinical time be complete before obtaining a certificate and taking the required test to become certified. At Caremark, we go above and beyond those minimum requirements to ensure quality training and set our students up for success.
