Mentorship Program

The CNA Certification Mentorship Program has nurse mentors all across Canada who volunteer their time to provide support and assistance to certification candidates. Nurse mentors hold current CNA certification and have a minimum of three years’ experience in their chosen nursing practice specialty.

As certification program mentors are seldom in the same city or province as an exam candidate, mentoring can take place by email or telephone – See more at:
