Getting Started in the Nurse Assistant Training Program

Before You Apply

All CNA applicants MUST be enrolled as a current Delta College Student and know your Delta College ID Number and email address in order to submit an application to the CNA Program. To be current as a Delta College student, an "active application" must be on file with Delta College Admissions and Records. If you have not attended Delta College for two or more semesters, then you do not have an "active application" and must reapply to Delta College. Any student who does not have an "active application" on file prior to the online application opening date will be unable to submit an application to the CNA program.
