Good Samaritan Society offers new CNA training program

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Becoming a certified CNA is now easier than ever for those applying at the Sioux Falls, Canistota and Canton locations. Good Samaritan’s original program has been shortened to an intensive three-week period where participants are paid full-time to complete a combination of classroom and skills-based training.

“Being a CNA allows you to build really a one-to-one relationship with that resident and their family members,” GSS VP of Nursing and Clinical Services Rochelle Rindels expressed. “It’s extremely rewarding to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries with them and become a part of a family.”

GSS – Sioux Falls Village CNA Lidea Loera said she felt supported during the CNA training process and can ask for help from her coworkers if she needs it. To those considering applying as a CNA, Loera says “it’s a really easy way to know if something like nursing is for you in the long-term or even if it’s just to help people as a summertime job.”
