Hillendell Medical Institute was founded because we saw a need for healthcare students in Metro Atlanta to receive the proper training in performing their job properly, safely, and efficiently. Our main purpose is to ensure students gain the crucial knowledge that applies to their healthcare careers.
Hillendell's mission is to prepare healthcare students in Metro Atlanta to provide holistic, ethical, and compassionate care to diverse populations in a variety of settings.
Hillendell's vision is to be recognized as the leader in Metro Atlanta for providing quality training as a result of professionalism, high standards, solid process, and healthcare procedures.
Our philosophy at Hillendell is quite simple. Great Learning Environment + Great Instructors = SUCCESSFUL STUDENTS. Classes at Hillendell are designed to give our students the best possible chance at reaching their desired career goals. We strive to ensure that every graduate will have the necessary skills to excel in his or her career when they enter the workforce. We take pride in educating our students to their full professional potential by giving them the personal attention they deserve. We conquer learning barriers and guide individuals to become confident, productive employees.
Hillendell offers a variety of class options for the CNA program. Students can select courses as short as 3 weeks (Fast Track/Dynamic) and up to 6 weeks.
Class options may include days, evenings, and/or weekends. Contact admissions to find out which option best fits your schedule.
You must be at least 16 years of age or older to enroll in Hillendell CNA Program classes. However, graduates younger than 18 may have difficulty finding work as most facilities will only hire 18 and over.
No, you do not need a high school diploma or GED to take classes for the CNA Program
While Hillendell does not help with job placement, on occasion recruiters from local healthcare facilities will visit our CNA classes. Being in the facilities during clinical can also help you in your job search.
That is dependent on the course you sign up for.
We typically will allow our students to pay a deposit for their course (usually one-third the cost of their tuition) and require the remaining balance be paid off before we can give the student their certificate or allow you to take a state/national exam.
We do not accept FAFSA at this time. We can work with students who are unemployed, displaced workers or receive government assistance to see if they can get financial assistance. We work with programs like WIA, Voc Rehab, and Community Based Services.
We accept credit card, money orders, and checks (made payable to Hillendell Medical Training).
For the CNA program, you MUST attend the first two days of class. If you miss one of the first two days, you cannot go to clinicals and must make up the corresponding day with the next class. If you miss any days outside of the first two, you can just make them up on your own time by sitting in with another class. However, if you miss three or more days, you must make up your time before you can go to clinicals.
For Phlebotomy, you can still make up any days that you miss but the same three-day rule applies. If you miss three or more days, you cannot go to your clinicals until the time is made up.
If Gwinnett County Schools are closed due to inclement weather, we are as well. If there is questionable weather on the weekends, students will need to call the school number to find out if classes will commence.
