(RNA) Classes

Want to increase your employment opportunities or fulfill a specific employment requirement? Take our Restorative Nursing Assistant classes!

Is there a prerequisite?
Yes, you must have CNA Certification.

What will I learn?
The training of a Restorative Nurse Assistant usually involves training in physical, occupational, emotional and support therapies and techniques for restoration of patient health. Examples include ambulation, positioning in chairs, range-of-motion exercises, and bathing and dressing. CNAs and RNAs work alongside registered nurses as well as occupational and physical therapists, setting up necessary supplies, and assisting as needed. For patients, CNA Restorative Aides help with exercises that do not need the direct supervision of a therapist or nurse.

How long is the program?
This program consists of two days of classroom training instruction.

What do graduates do?
Graduates can work in Assisted Living facilities, Nursing Centers, Alzheimer's facilities, Therapy Departments, Acute Care Hospitals, Rehab Hospitals, Out Patient Centers, Hospice Agencies, and Home Health Agencies.

What can I expect to earn?
CNA/RNA salaries can range anywhere from $22,535 to $36,361 annually or a mean hourly rate of $14.01, according to the California Employment Development Department depending on experience, prior education, location and other factors. The number of RNAs employed in 2008 was 1.5 million, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Between 2008 and 2018, the need for RNAs is expected to grow by 18 percent. This growth will be driven by an aging baby boomer population which will need increased medical care.
