Many aspiring Physician Assistant (PA) students don’t fully realize how challenging the competition can be when it comes to gaining admission to the school of their choice.
In order to be accepted to the top PA programs in the nation, applicants are required to have between 1,000 and 4,000 hours of direct patient care experience, according to the American Academy of PAs.
Heart to Heart’s Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) training is a great way to build hands-on experience and gain a leg up on the competition when applying to various PA programs.
While there are many CNA programs to choose from, Heart to Heart Healthcare Training offers an exceptional education at an affordable price with flexibility to fit your busy summer schedule.
