After obtaining your CNA certification, you will be promoted into a CNA position so that you can put your new skills to use, along with the training you've been getting along the way, to help make a difference in the lives of our patients and residents. It is expected that you remain employed in a full time or eligible part time CNA position within a Corewell Health Rehab and Nursing Facility for at least one year.

Additionally, once you are promoted to a CNA position, you will receive a sign on bonus of either $2,000 for full time or $1,000 for part time. Ask your recruiter for more details!
