CNA online training in Ontario, Canada?

Published

Hey everyone,

I want to get CNA certification here in Ontario, Canada, and would love to get it online. I am currently in a BScN program. I have completed my first year and right now on the summer break until september. So thought why not use this free time to get CNA certification and licence so that I can get myself a job in a nearby hospital. Anyway I have tried searching for it but had no luck. Does anyone know an institute where you got yours online? If so, can you please send me a link or the name would be appreciated too.

Oh and is my first year courses will be any help in obtaining CNA? just wondering!

Please share anything you would know about this. I will really appreciate it. Thank you everyone!

You can't do it online in Ontario. PSW takes at least 8 months full time. Many places will hire you as a PSW if you have a year of nursing school finished.

I wasn't sure about the online part loriangel, in SK you can take it online you just need to go in for labs during some classes.

Thanks so much for your replies. I came to realize yesterday that CNA is just the term used for PSW in states. so my apologies. however, i agree with loriangel14 that i can work as a psw now since i have completed my 1st year. Once again thanks again for your help :)
