Oak Point University CNA Accelerator Program


This unique career opportunity — funded through Shirley Ryan AbilityLab’s Robert R. McCormick Foundation Center for Hope & Equity — provides a fully paid, fast track for educating, certifying and employing certified nursing assistants (CNAs), also known in our organization as patient care technicians (PCTs).

PCTs provide basic care to our patients, including assistance with basic hygiene, activities of daily living and therapeutic rehabilitation activities.

Over a period of 8 weeks, students attend classes at Oak Point University’s facility in Wicker Park (at the AMITA Health Saints Mary and Elizabeth Hospital). The curriculum includes 2 weeks of classroom orientation followed by 6 weeks of one-day clinical experience and additional classwork. Students are paid for their time in class and receive free tuition and course materials.

Upon completing the program, graduates are eligible to become CNAs after also passing a written exam and a practical test administered by the Illinois Department of Public Health.
