Get hired as a Certified Nursing Assistant at Providence – The largest health care
employer in Washington State

After completing the program and obtaining your certification, you’re eligible to apply to any open Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) positions. Our goal is 100% employment at Providence for all successful students. We offer best-in-class benefits for all positions 20 hours per week and above, as well as outstanding potential for personal and career growth, tuition reimbursement programs for approved college programs, generous paid time off and, in some cases, sign-on bonuses. The number of CNA roles is growing and it’s a great way to enter the health care field. Many CNAs move on to become Nurses and at Providence, we can help you get there.

How it works

The program includes 150 hours (roughly 6-weeks) of didactic and clinical rotation, with participants working as a student nursing assistant in the float pool for two months. After that, you’re encouraged to apply for positions within Sacred Heart, Holy Family, St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute or Steven’s County Providence Hospitals. Once hired, 100 percent of education expenses are reimbursed – including tuition, school-related taxes, books, CPR training, lab materials and HIV/AIDS training.
