CNA Certification Leads to Job Opportunities

Jobs are expected to continue to grow at long-term care facilities, including nursing homes. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nursing assistant jobs are expected to increase by 17% by 2024. However, with more jobs being created each year, more opportunities will open up for nursing assistants in both short and long-term residential care facilities and clinics. MTC ensures that you have all the expertise necessary to excel in the field, as well as provide you with the tools necessary to pass the certification exam. Upon passing the certification exam, you will become a Certified Nursing Assistant by the Department of Health, Florida Board of Nursing, and CNA Board.
