Certified Nursing Assistant Program

Each year nearly 500 trainees graduate from our CNA training program at The McGuire Training Center located at 425 Michigan Avenue in Buffalo. The paid training program educates individuals with the hands-on skills necessary to provide superior care to our residents and patients. After 120 hours of training, individuals are required to pass a New York State administered exam to receive their certification.
