CNA Opportunities

Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) are integral to the operations of Clark-Lindsey. Whether you work in the Green House Homes or Meadowbrook Health Center, full time or PRN, we recognize that the employees who know our residents best are the ones who work most closely with them.  It is this level of deep knowing that makes working in long-term care so unique and rewarding. These relationships also give CNAs a unique and valuable perspective, which Clark-Lindsey harnesses to improve its care and work experience. 

Clark-Lindsey created the first in the area CNA Career Ladder to utilize these perspectives, and to provide opportunities for personal and professional growth. In addition to typical CNA work, those who have worked at Clark-Lindsey for more than three months have the opportunity to apply and train for the following positions, which come with increased compensation and responsibility.
