GNA Certification & Training Program

At Top Knowledge Healthcare Institute, we’re proud to offer a GNA training program that can be a convenient option for CNAs and CNA/GNA hopefuls to advance their careers and gain valuable knowledge.

Who Should Enroll?

The GNA program is offered to students 18 years and older who have an active Certified Nursing Assistant license in good standing with the Maryland Board of Nursing. It is ideal for those who have already taken the standard CNA training program, who have either not passed the GNA exam or who didn’t have the chance to work in taking the GNA exam into their schedules before the window of time of eligibility expired.

Taking the GNA course is a great way to refresh your knowledge of the necessary concepts in a shorter period of time—and at a lower cost—than retaking the traditional CNA/GNA course.

Course Components of the GNA Program

Similarly to the CNA/GNA program, the GNA program is comprised of three components: theory, laboratory, and clinical. In this program, the theory portion is 22 hours, the laboratory portion is 23 hours, and the clinical component is 40 hours. It is a four-week course that teaches students the basic nursing skills they need to pass the CNA and GNA exams, including:

  • Hygiene
  • Grooming
  • Nutrition
  • Toileting
  • Principles of infection control
  • Communication techniques
  • Taking of vital signs
  • How to safely lift, move, and position patients.
