St. John’s United provides an accredited nursing assistant training program for individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in healthcare.

The program offers 96 hours of training over 12 days. The class consists of both classroom and clinical training and is taught by qualified licensed nurse instructors. Each classroom day starts at 8:00am and ends at 4:30pm while each of the three clinical days start at 6:30am and end at 3:00pm. All practical training is performed side by side with healthcare professionals at St. John’s. After successful completion of the course, students are eligible to test for the Montana State Certification. Due to the intensive course load, all 12 days of attendance are mandatory.

There is a $400 charge for the CNA course with an additional $50.00 charge for the Instruction Book and materials provided throughout class for a total of $450.00.  Your participation in this program is strictly voluntary. You are not entitled to wages or benefits from the facility or St. John’s United while you are going through this program. If you do gain employment with St. John’s as a C.N.A. or Elder Sharath immediately following the successful completion of the course, St. John’s will refund $400 of your class fees over the course of one year if you are still employed and you are in good standing.

Each new nursing assistant must successfully pass a State Certification Exam within 120 days of class graduation to continue CNA practice. Proctored exams are provided for employees of St. John’s United.
