Care Assistant Training
Care Assistants are a critical part of the nursing care team at Children’s Mercy. Many traditional CNA training programs focus training on adult patients. CM has developed an eight-week training program that is tailored to pediatrics where candidates apply and interview with one of our nursing departments. If selected, they will be paid a full-time salary while in training. Once training is complete, candidates begin working on the unit where they conducted training. Although we do allow both internal and external candidates to apply, priority consideration is given to internal candidates.
