CNA Programs in Tennessee

If you are considering starting a career as a nursing assistant you can begin your research by identifying CNA training courses in Tennessee cities near you. It is recommended that you contact each training center of interest to learn more about their program offerings, class schedules, prerequisite requirements and more.


Embarking upon a new career path is an important decision and should not be taken lightly. Many Tennessee CNA classes include 6-12 weeks of classroom study and prepare students to take the CNA certification exam upon completion. Students should master the core competencies required of a nurse aide during their training class. Courses are available throughout Tennessee to meet student’s needs.

Some CNA training classes are offered for free in exchange for a promised period of employment at the training facility upon certification. These free CNA classes are typically available through long-term care centers and assisted living nursing homes in Tennessee.

Tennessee nursing students can usually expect to pay anywhere between $500-$1500 for a CNA training course. This cost typically includes classroom hours, books and study materials. After passing the course students will be eligible to take the CNA certification exam to earn their license to practice.
