Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) Program

CCM has developed this high quality short-term clinical healthcare program to help people quickly enter the workforce, earn money and begin a healthcare career. Certified Nurse Aides may work in nursing homes or other residential care facilities. CNA’s may also be employed in hospitals, rehab centers, long-term care facilities or in home health care companies.

This is an excellent way to learn about the healthcare industry, try out patient care skills and determine if a career path into nursing or other medical fields is for you. Not only can you earn while you learn, but you may qualify for tuition reimbursement through your employer to help pay for advanced certifications and degrees. If you are in mid-career and want to stay active, this is a great way to earn an income while helping others, and feel good about contributing positively to someone’s quality of life. CCM’s Certified Nurse Aides are in high demand and often have job opportunities before the course ends! For individuals contemplating a career in nursing, becoming a CNA is an excellent opportunity to earn money while you are attending school, and get real-life patient care experience.

A Certified Nurse Aide’s (CNA) main role is to provide basic care to patients and assist them in daily activities that they may have trouble completing on their own. CNAs learn to care for people living in long-term care facilities, rehabilitation settings or hospitals. The NJ Department of Health regulates and approves the CCM training program. Training will be conducted in CCM nursing labs and in actual care facilities. It includes 50 lecture and 40 clinical hours. This certificate can be completed in as little as 6 to 9 weeks.


The screening process has a $99 NON-REFUNDABLE processing fee, which covers the cost of a criminal background investigation and expenses incurred by the college to admit you into the program.  REGISTER FOR SCREENING FOR THE SUMMER PROGRAM HERE. 

Clearance and course registration can take up to six weeks to complete the prerequisite documentation and clearance requirements.  You must start the process early. Prior to the first day of class, students, at their own expense, must satisfactorily complete drug screening at facilities approved by CCM, as well as complete an extensive medical history review. Additional expenses include, but are not limited to, uniforms and textbooks. Please email with any questions.

Please note that County College of Morris’ clinical partners require that all employees and students at their facilities must be fully vaccinated and boosted for COVID-19.  If you believe this will be a hinderance to your participation in the program, please reach out to before registering for the screening.



This course combines lecture and labs in a hospital setting and clinical experience in a long-term care setting, allowing students to master the essential skills to obtain an entry level position in the healthcare field. This Comprehensive course includes Healthcare Professional BLS (Basic Life Support) certification and a three-day Skills Review and Exam program concluding with the state required skills evaluation. Upon the successful completion of the course, students are eligible to take the NJ State approved Certified Nurse Aide certification examination. Class size is limited to 10 students.
