Want A Career in Healthcare?

Get your Certified Nursing Assistant certification in Bonners Ferry through North Idaho College and Boundary Community Hospital

Classes held Tuesdays and Thursdays (days) in Bonners Ferry at the Fry Healthcare Education Center (on Kaniksu Street across from the main hospital building).

In affiliation with North Idaho College (NIC), Boundary Community Hospital provides classes to earn a State of Idaho certification as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) four times a year. The course consists of 120 hours of instruction: 80 hours in the classroom and 40 hours of clinical experience. At the end of the 120 hours of training, the student will take a certification examination at the North Idaho Workforce Training Center in Post Falls, Idaho.

When certified, the Nursing Assistant can work throughout the State of Idaho and within those states that have a reciprocity agreement with the State of Idaho.

CNA training can begin as early as age 16 with no maximum age limit. A high school or college diploma is not a prerequisite for either the training or the certification. Graduates are work-ready.

Class meets at the Fry Healthcare Education Center, across from the hospital, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday of each week.
