MONTOUR FALLS – Schuyler Hospital is now seeking candidates for a Certified Nursing Assistant Training Program in the Seneca View Skilled Nursing Facility.
Seneca View holds a five-week program, Mondays-Fridays, for Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs). The students’ time is divided between the classroom and working with residents. The program includes 120 hours of classroom instruction, orientation to the skilled nursing units, lab practice, and 40 hours of supervised clinical training.
Upon successful completion of the Seneca View Nursing Assistant Training Program and a NYS exam, students receive a two-year certification to practice as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). Certified Nursing Assistants provide care to residents in the skilled nursing facility (or nursing home).
While similar programs in colleges and other training facilities can cost up to $1,500 or more for tuition, the Seneca View Nursing Assistant Training Program is being offered at no charge to the student. In addition, successful students are guaranteed a job at Seneca View after passing their certification exam.

Becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant is ideal for those wishing to enter into the medical field and learn on-the-job about the field of nursing.
Employment of nursing assistants and orderlies is projected to grow 17 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. Because of the growing elderly population, many nursing assistants and orderlies will be needed to assist and care for these patients.
