I couldn't be more grateful for my experience at Advanced Career Academy. The CNA program exceeded my expectations in every way. Dr. Moore, our incredible instructor, went above and beyond to ensure that I understood the material inside out. She patiently guided me through any confusion and made herself readily available for any questions I had. Thanks to her invaluable support, I not only passed my knowledge and skills test with flying colors but also gained a deep understanding of the subject matter that will serve me well throughout my career. Advanced Career Academy truly sets the bar high when it comes to quality education and dedicated instructors like Dr. Moore make all the difference!
