LNA Program Information
The LNA program consists of 110 hours of training. Students participate in 50 hours of classroom and lab and 60 hours of clinical where they are actually caring for the residents in their training facility. Learning is achieved through videos, interactive games, hands on participation and minimal class lecturing. There are 4 exams given throughout the course. As part of our creative teaching style, all exams are available on audio CDs for students who prefer to have them read orally.
Classes are held in over 12 facilities throughout New Hampshire. Schedule or Directions.
Our Admissions Office is located in Manchester at 22 Concord Street.
We have three private classrooms in Manchester and one in Concord. All other classrooms are located in the facility where the training is held. All private classrooms are fully equipped with simulated clinical rooms, complete with semi-electric beds, hand-washing facilities, wheelchairs, walkers, lifts and all other supplies necessary to provide a positive, hands on learning environment. Our other training facilities are located throughout Southern NH (Manchester, Concord, Derry, Bedford, Nashua, Goffstown) as well as Laconia, Franklin, Dover and Keene.
