Maryland CNA Training Programs

The Maryland State Board of Nursing guidelines regarding curriculum mandates that Maryland CNA training programs must cover certain areas of health care during education. For instance, students must be taught the role of a CNA as it pertains to communication and interpersonal relations, infection control, and safety and environmental responsibilities. Another section of training will focus on patient assistant care regarding hygiene, mobility and positioning, elimination, and basic nutrition. General health care knowledge relating to treatment options, basic anatomy and physiology, diseases, life span growth and development, and basic human needs must be taught as well. Furthermore, medical terminology and definitions will be mastered to help CNAs in data collection, observing, recording and reporting necessary for quality care. Lastly, coursework must involve proper techniques in emergency and first-aid procedures like CPR and the Heimlich maneuver.

Community colleges and state universities offer possible classes including:

  • Fundamentals of Nursing
  • Physical Assessment
  • Introduction to Clinical Nursing
  • Basic Pharmacology of Nursing
  • Foundations of the Nursing Role
  • Technology and Therapeutic Inventions
