“While looking for solutions to CNA staffing and retention, I ran across Straightaway’s program. This program is research-based and has a realistic approach to the position of Certified Nursing Assistant. The training to become a CNA is excellent and the mentoring program to retain them afterwards is a great new approach that has been needed for a long time. I can’t wait to track my improvement in CNA training and retention”.

Administrator at Thomasville Health Care & Rehabilitation Center

“Straightaway offers us the opportunity to train new CNAs with a proven and modern approach to retention. Both the instructional content and app-based support would have taken us years to develop on our own and are well worth the investment.”

“We reviewed several vendors to help us implement a CNA school. We chose Straightaway because of the ease of the online training program. With the ability to customize the lesson plans to the state-specific requirements and videos embedded within each lesson plan, we saw huge value in no longer having to hunt for a link or a DVD at a specific time -- it flows very smoothly. We were also impressed with the quality of the videos, as they not only demonstrated clinical instruction, but they also touched on the frustrations and feelings that are going to come with this job, and our belief is that this type of training will better prepare nursing assistants for the sometimes harsh reality of the things they will encounter.”

Kathryn Mejia

Director of Talent Acquisition at Sun Mar Nursing

“Straightaway has been the partner that our hospital district has been searching for to kick off our certified nurse assistant training! From sales to training, the entire team has been easy to work with and are very knowledgeable and committed to a good experience. I have had the privilege to sit in on the training of our instructors and have been quite impressed with the detail put into the courseware. We look forward to starting our first training and receiving feedback from our students!”
