Illinois, IL - CNA Certification Training Programs

Depending on your goals and qualifications to meet the CNA requirements in Illinois, IL you should answer a few basic questions before you proceed on the right education path. 

  1. Please Choose Your Highest Level of Education

The health sector of Illinois’s economy is growing, and the demand for CNAs is growing along with it. Like many other states, there is a shortage of nursing staff in Illinois. This means opportunities for CNAs in Illinois are plentiful. Often, CNAs in the state, which are also known as Certified Nurse Aides, will be employed in long-term care facilities such as nursing homes, as well as hospitals and clinics. Full time Certified Nursing Assistants in Illinois make an average salary of $31,000 per year (according to BLS.gov) plus benefits, a salary which is well above the national average and variable based upon experience. With growing health care needs, Illinois is a good place to start a career in the health sector as a Certified Nursing Assistant.
