Registration opens for the AIIC course at the FVCC

Flathead Valley Community College’s Certified Nursing Assistant course is currently open for enrollment.

The CNA course at FVCC provides high-level training for students interested in entering the nursing profession. Many nurses start out as CNAs before progressing into other nursing education streams.

Information and the registration package can be accessed on the website at

Interested students can also pick up a hard copy at the FVCC Department of Nursing office located at the Rebecca Cheney Broussard Center on the FVCC campus in Kalispell. CNA fall courses begin August 31.

The course lasts one semester and offers five university credits.

“Many undergraduate nursing and health care programs require CNA training to apply, and some programs award additional points in the CNA training application process. This makes the CNA program a great first step for anyone interested in the health professions,” says Pam Klein, CNA coordinator.

Klein adds that most nursing homes and hospitals in the Flathead Valley and across the state and nation hire CNAs.

“As a CNA, you can work anywhere, in almost any clinic you choose,” Klein said.

Those interested in taking the Certified Nursing Assistant course at the FVCC for the upcoming fall semester must complete a background check and provide documentation of multiple vaccinations and tests, which may take longer.

The faculty recommends that students start early in order to have enough time for the application and registration process.
