Personal Career Assistant Training & Employment at Augustana Regent of Burnsville: Training takes place on 6/11, 6/12 and 6/13 from 8:30 AM – 4 PM each day. Augustana is once again going to offer summer Personal Care Assistant training for students. This will lead to part-time employment if the training is successful. The knowledge & skills you learn in this position are very similar to those needed to pass the exams to become a Certified Nursing Assistant. If you complete this training and then are a successful PCA for Augustana they will commit to helping you prepare for and take the CNA exam without having to pay over $1000.00 to take an actual CNA college course. Any of you considering nursing and other healthcare careers should very seriously consider getting your CNA certification. This is in some case an expectation for students entering nursing programs. In other cases, it can help get you into competitive nursing programs. CNA positions tend to provide pretty competitive wages as well.
