Certified Nursing Assistant

..they can be found in nursing homes, hospitals, adult day health centers, group living facilities, assisted living 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.

Matrix MTC provides up-to-date training programs for those who seek to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). Classes are taught by well qualified staff, approved by the Tennessee Department of Health Nurse Aide Program and is authorized under the Tennessee Higher Education Commission for operation.

At Matrix Medical Training Center, our goal is to improve the quality of patient care through education and consistency for those who choose a career as a health care professional.

We have a fully equipped skills lab for learning the hands-on aspects of caregiving and to help students become comfortable in providing one-on-one assistance to patients.

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). Matrix MTC also provides CPR/AED certification for healthcare providers (BLS) to help students be better prepared to enter the workforce upon course completion.


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. Matrix MTC 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 $98 will be up to the student to cover. Once the student receives the authorized PIN number from Matrix MTC 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.
