CNA Course Schedule

Thank you for your interest in the Ballad Health Nurse Aide Training Program.

Enrollment for the upcoming classes are continuing with some variations to prevent the spread of COVID-19. There is a slightly longer time frame for responses to applications due to workplace changes to comply with social distancing. Applicants will be contacted via the email address on the application within 1 to 3 business days of application submission.

While it our hope that the May classes for both Tennessee and Virginia will begin as currently scheduled, if any changes need to be made to our program schedule, communication will be sent to all applicants via email. Please add CNAProgram@balladhealth.org to your contacts list to ensure receive all communications for next steps.

Our staff are working hard to answer all questions and update our practices during this unprecedented time.

Please continue to follow recommendations from CDC and community leaders regarding safe practices of handwashing, social distancing, and staying home.
