Samaritan offers several programs and opportunities to attract and train a great workforce. One of the most important positions in Long-Term Care is the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), and Samaritan offers our its own CNA Training Program to ensure we have qualified staff caring for our nursing home residents.
