Restorative Nurse Aide Training Program

Program Overview

An RNA is a certified nursing assistant (CNA) with specialized training in rehabilitation skills who assists the restorative team with supervised and delegated restorative programs.

Unlike CNA, states or federal agencies do NOT regulate the education and certification of the RNA designation! RNA is considered an enhanced or specialized CNA role rather than a specific certification or license.
