Bryan University Announces New Nursing Assistant Certificate Program 

Bryan University is excited to announce a new in-person, hands-on program at our campus in Tempe, Arizona: Nursing Assistant Certificate. 

This brand-new program is designed to provide the education, skills, and confidence needed to succeed as a nursing assistant after graduation. From day one, our students will learn as newly hired “employees” in an environment that mimics a real-world employment setting, allowing for a seamless transition from the classroom to the clinical setting. 

Our state-of-the-art campus features labs that simulate a clinical working environment, and our small lab sizes ensure students can connect with instructors to hone their skills. Students will learn essential hands-on skills such as collecting vital signs, assessing range of motion & mobility, and Resident Care Procedures (RCP), including dressing, bathing, and repositioning. 

This program encompasses 120 hours of learning, which includes 45 tech-enabled hours and 75 hours of hands-on learning. 

Graduates gain valuable skills needed for this critical healthcare role, such as:

  • Resident rights, safety, and care procedures like dressing, bathing, and transferring 
  • Medical terminology
  • Anatomy and physiology 
  • Infectious disease control in a long-term setting
  • Chain of command training
  • Non-blood specimen collection
  • Isolation precautions
  • Critical thinking & communication skills
  • Ethical conduct and emotional intelligence
  • Preparation for Arizona CNA certification

As no-cost benefits to all Bryan University nursing assistant students, the following items are included in tuition:

  • Certification for the Certified Nursing Assistant exam (CNA) through the Arizona Board of Nursing
  • Onsite certification testing at Bryan University
  • One free micro-credential voucher upon completion of the program, offering students an upskilling opportunity of their choice aimed at skills such as behavioral health, respiratory care, and disease prevention
  • All your books, courseware, and classroom supplies
  • A Nursing Assistant Career Kit that contains a BU padfolio & pen, ID badge reel, blood pressure cuff & stethoscope kit, and a voucher to purchase a set of scrubs to your preferred style and color!

Bryan University nursing assistant students will also be able to connect with peers, teachers, and mentors who will provide invaluable support. Get one-on-one tutoring, help with resume writing and interviewing skills, and job assistance while you’re still in school and once you graduate. 

The faculty and staff at Bryan University are proud to offer this new program to current and prospective students. Are you interested in making a difference in the lives of others and starting a lifelong career in healthcare? Learn more about our Nursing Assistant Certificate Program today!
