  • In the beginning, I was hesitant to join. I thought that because I hadn’t been in a class setting in 20 years I wouldn’t fit in. But not only did I fit in, I thrived! Angela, the instructor, made sure that all of her students were engaged in reading, hands-on training and fun learning games with prizes! In the matter of only three short weeks, I was able to become a Certified Nurse Assitant and CPR Certified. We enjoyed lots of laughs and built some beautiful friendships. I am proud to be a graduate of MHA. Angela is the greatest of all time with many years of experience, knowledge, and devotion in “Training Tomorrows Heroes”.

  • I enrolled in MHA and was very hesitant and doubtful in myself that I wasn’t going to be able to do it. The first day our instructor Angela was so welcoming to us new students. Angela provided us with a lot of great knowledge about becoming a CNA. As the class went on I still didn’t believe in myself but then when we started testing Angela reassured I would do great, and I did I was passing everything with flying colors. I don’t think I would have been able to pass any place else because Angela is so caring, educated and over all just amazing. A big thanks to Angela and this program. I’m so glad I enrolled here with MHA.

    Amazing experience!
  • The material was easy to understand and was presented in ways that kept my attention. Class was actually fun. I learned many new things even after already having been an aide for several years. The instructors were all very nice and helped us succeed.

  • Michigan Healthcare Academy has brought so much excitement into my life! I am currently training to be a CNA (Certified Nurse Assistant) as I continue my education to become a Nurse. This program is only THREE WEEKS long, and it is taught by an amazing instructor, Angela. Throughout this class I have learned so much, and have met amazing people that I now call family. SO, if you are looking to become a CNA I highly recommend MHA!!!

    Lexie Mooney

  • This was a very informative course on how to be the best CNA. It is a mix of lectures and labs that are really fun and cool to learn about! Definitely would recommend this class to anyone who plans on becoming a CNA and loves to be hands on with anything.

  • This place is amazing! And Angela is the absolute best! She made this class fun so it was super easy to learn and retain the information. The place is clean and really nice. I would recommend this place to ANYONE who wants their CNA certification.

    Nysie Booker

  • Such a great class! Loved everyone in the program, especially Angela:) She made the class so much fun and we were all able to learn so much. The hands on experience along with the clinical hours was extremely beneficial. The school and the clinical training site was such a great environment, I highly recommend taking this class if you are looking to get some experience in the medical field along with patient contact hours!

  • I am thankful for the opportunity to have had the chance to learn CNA skills from such a wise and compassionate instructor! Angela, is hands down the best!! She takes her time with everyone! Her teaching skills work for anyone of any age! (Over 17) I am inspired by all of my fellow classmates and in awe of the positive effect that this class (group) will have as I move forward in life. Thank you, MHA 🏥🩺will be back for the phlebotomy course in January.

  • The staff and students were so sweet! I had so much fun in the CNA training course. The instructor Angela was also extremely thorough with training, made classes fun and engaging, and was really patient with all the questions the class asked. I feel really confident taking the state exam and I’m so happy I already have a job after training. I attended class during COVID and everyone wore masks. We were still able to do hands on practicing with our peers. We all sanitized and took temperature coming into class as well. Some info on how I came across this class: I had an interest in applying to CNA job postings because I plan to be a registered nurse one day. CNA jobs require a certification so then I started looking for CNA training programs. I looked up all the programs in my area and emailed/called them for information. If I emailed them, I made sure to include my resume just in case. I happened to contact this school. Then an employer called me one day offering to pay for my training in exchange for a 1 year work agreement. I went to the job interview and got hired before I started training. My training is now fully paid for and i will finish in a week. Then I will start working for my employer.
