Job and Career-Focused Healthcare Training Programs
Getting a job can be difficult. Finding a good career can be even harder. At Medstar Academy, we train students for rewarding, high-demand careers in healthcare. By preparing students for a career in the medical field, we work to help them create a foundation for long-term work that benefits both them and their families.
We look closely at the requirements for state and national exams and then develop a curriculum designed to effectively train students to pass the exams, readying them for successful healthcare careers.
Licensed Nursing Assistant (LNA)
Many employers are now requiring LNA certification for new nursing assistants. CNA students at Medstar Academy have the opportunity to get both CNA and LNA licensure at the same time for only a $103 additional fee. If you are interested in dual licensure, please contact student services for further information.
Why Choose Medstar Academy Training Programs?
- Many schools try to “cram” all the material in just a few weeks, whereas our programs are moderately paced and student progress is very closely monitored to make sure the student is on track to pass licensing exams.
- We limit class sizes so instructors can devote sufficient time to successfully training students.
- Many of our students find jobs with our clinical partners
- Student Services patiently walk students through all the steps necessary to complete the forms and paperwork for certification.
- Some students qualify for third-party grants.
- Medstar Academy’s healthcare training programs are certified by an agency of the State of Arizona so students can get the training they need, with the preparation necessary to begin working as soon as they successfully meet all requirements for their particular field.
