Are Any Free CNA Programs Available Online?

As of July 2015, there are no certified nursing assistant (CNA) programs online for free; however, there are some free noncredit CNA courses online, notes Study.com. Examples include health issues in aging populations at Johns Hopkins University and patient communication skills at the University of Michigan.

Free online CNA courses can help CNAs and those interested in the career continue their knowledge of foundational nursing topics, notes Study.com. Other courses that can help achieve this include medical terminology at Des Moines University, patients issues and medical errors, principles of human nutrition and ethical issues in public health at Johns Hopkins University, medical ethics at the University of Notre Dame and perspectives in global health at the University of Michigan.
