About Us

Welcome To Carolina Nursing Assistant Program Academy (CNAPA)

Carolina Nursing Assistant Program Academy is comprised of a team of dedicated and motivated professionals that are inspired to teach tomorrow’s healthcare angels. Founded in March 2006, we attribute our success of serving hundreds of students over the years to having the heart to educate compassionate and caring people.   Our students are very special and important to us. It is our hope and sincere desire that all students under our tutelage will be excellent caregivers and will consider advancing their healthcare career beyond the level of C.N.A. to the next level in the nursing profession.

Our program’s intention to give you the best nursing training and education with the emphasis on respect, choice, dignity, and compassion.  In this career field you are expected to care for the sick, elderly and disabled.  C.N.A‘s is expected to provide the highest level of respect and compassion when providing patient care.  As the Program Director of this program, I like to share my own testimony of my journey from C.N.A ->LPN -> RN->BSN to Program Director and Owner of CNAPA.  Nursing has proven to be a very rewarding career for me and I’m sure you will feel that same satisfaction too.  We exercise great patience with students, we pay close attention to detail, and our hands-on method of teaching has really inspired our students to excel in the health care industry.  It takes a special kind of person to work in the health care field and if you feel this is you then we invite you to enroll now in our program today.

When you’ve worked hard and done well and walked through doorways of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. You reach back.” -Michelle Obama
