facilities, even personal homes. Wherever there is a need for personal care, Certified Nursing Assistants are the
ones who perform the most basic needs for patients, young and old alike. They work under the supervision of a
nurse and other licensed healthcare personnel. Since aides have extensive daily contact with each patient, they are
key to providing vital information on the patients' conditions to the nurse and the healthcare team.

Your tuition includes everything you need, except white shoes and a watch!
Tuition includes textbook and workbook, all instructional materials, a set of scrubs, and the state board exam fee (for the
initial testing). PTC also provides CPR/AED certification for healthcare providers (BLS) to help students be better prepared
to enter the workforce upon course completion.
TOTAL TUITION COST FOR CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANT COURSE = $875
Upon course completion, eligible students are registered for the state certification exam.
The exam will be given through an outside testing agency (D&S Diversified Technologies) that is contracted by the
Tennessee Department of Health. PTC arranges the initial payment of the exam on behalf of the students. This payment
covers the first testing attempt. It does not cover any testing retakes, if the student fails to appear for the scheduled
testing, or if the student is turned away from the exam due to being unprepared/disruptive. All testing fees beyond the
initial $96 will be up to the student to cover. Once the student receives the authorized PIN number from PTC upon course
completion, they will schedule their state exam through the agency independently. They will be given directions on how
to do so. There are multiple test sites and schedules across the state of Tennessee.
