In healthcare, direct patient care hours are a fundamental requirement, particularly for students who want to become physician assistants.


Postgraduate programs typically demand a minimum of 1,000 to 2,000 direct patient care hours, which can be a significant challenge for aspiring students who lack prior experience in healthcare.

"I chose One Breath CNA Academy since it's close to my school (UGA) and I wanted to increase my direct patient care hours."

"Highly recommend One Breath! Will makes learning fun and the CNA program is only six weeks long. I had so many questions about my future plans for continuing education and Will was more than happy to discuss these things with me. Many instructors I have met are only doing it for the money, Will does it because he cares about his students and has a deep passion for teaching. CNA students are offered multiple additional certifications along with an attempt at the state exam. I am blessed I had the opportunity to attend One Breath and become one step closer to my dream!"

As someone who works full-time, being able to take the online CNA course provided great balance and convenience. The instructor was very helpful and patient and also made learning fun when having to practice skill. I highly recommend this course.
