21 Dec How to Ace Your CNA Training
You’ve already registered for the right Quality CNA Training course near you; now, you’re looking for advice so you can successfully pass your class! We’re here to give you proven tips-and-tricks from former students like you.
1. Show Up to Class!
This may be stating the obvious, but in order to pass your class, you actually need to be in class. We recommend showing up to your classroom 15 minutes before your first day of in-person training, and then 5 – 10 minutes before every class after. Showing up even just a few minutes early is a great way for you to prepare for that day’s lesson.
2. Do Your Online Work!
Trust us, we know how tempting it is to procrastinate. Buuuuuut we’ve designed this class to help you feel as prepared as possible, especially before you’re in the classroom for lab and skills practice. If you have no background in healthcare, not doing your online work by the due dates will make class harder, and who wants that?! Your 20 hours of online work is broken down day by day, and you can always work ahead. We’ve seen students pull all-nighters to complete their work and we don’t want that to be you. A little online work a day goes a long way!
3. Ask Questions and Take Notes!
We cannot stress enough how encouraged questions are. No one is an automatic expert at everything, and you’re in the classroom to learn. Your instructors are always more than happy to answer any questions you might have, no matter how “silly” you might think they are. Taking notes goes hand-in-hand with asking questions. After all, taking handwritten notes is proven to help you better remember the materials, and it’s a great way to review the day when you’re done with class and at home. You can also make study guides from your notes as you prepare for your final exams, too! The way we see it, it’s a win-win.
4. Be Proactive with Your Education!
You might be doing everything right in the classroom, but we all know that life happens. If something comes up that may throw a wrench in your education, please reach out to our main office. We are here to help you, and one-on-one attention is just one of the many perks of taking a QCNAT course. We have heard it all, and we are ready to help you finish out your training whenever possible.
5. Trust in Yourself and Your Abilities!
Confidence is key, especially when it comes to CNA training. This might be the cheesiest thing we’ll ever say, but as long as you believe in yourself and continue to put in the hard work, you WILL achieve your career goals and dreams!
