My experience with the NBCNA program was entirely positive. The classroom hours were used efficiently, as Ms. Carver directly states the topics on the exam and goes into detail on those. She also gives examples and stories from her own experiences, which I feel better prepared us to begin clinicals. Each day in the classroom felt like a stepping stone towards passing the exam and beginning our CNA careers.
Clinicals provided a level of supported independence that greatly deepened my education. We always had people to check in with and ask for help from, but were able to actually work with the residents ourselves. Not just observation, but active participation.
I felt entirely prepared to pass both the written and skills components of the exam! I highly recommend this course.
