BRG CNA-Caregiver Bridge

For the currently licensed Arizona CNA student, the NCIA Board allows for a waiver of some classroom hours. Since CNA students must take and pass the Arizona State Written Exam to become an Assisted Living Caregiver, a CNA student’s classroom experience is shortened, but you will cover the entire curriculum through eLearning, competency exams, and classroom instruction. This approach is called the CNA Bridge. Bridge students will complete 16 hours of class on either a Daytime (Monday & Tuesday) or a Weekend (Saturday & Sunday) schedule.  

The curriculum covers the required critical areas including the orientation and overview of Assisted Living, Legal and Ethical Issues, Communication and Interpersonal Skills, Service Plans, Infection Control, Nutrition and Food Preparation, Fire, Safety, and Emergency Procedures, Facility Environment and Maintenance, Basic Caregiver Skills, Mental Health and Social Services, Care of the Cognitively Impaired Resident, Skills for Basic Restorative Services, and Medication Management. The practical hands-on skill development that will occur throughout the course in the AMTI skill labs is key to the Program’s success. Teaching methods encompass a variety of strategies, including hands-on practice, discussion, and videos, as well as computer-aided technology. AMTI s instructors work in Assisted Living and/or own Assisted Living Homes or Centers in the metro Phoenix area. Each instructor brings unmatched realism into the classroom and a deep understanding of requirements to provide excellence in assisted living care.

Graduates will receive a Certification of Completion after passing a State Mandated Final Exam.
