I am just starting my long and exciting journey to one day becoming an RN. I'm going to be finishing up all my pre-reqs this summer and applying for the maricopa nursing program in the fall! I'm looking into becoming a CNA and working as a CNA for the time being and while going to school. I've been looking at the different programs in the valley and was pretty surprised how expensive they were for some pretty short courses, some only 6 weeks long. I've found most of them to be right around $1000 including books, scrubs, etc.
Is that pretty average? Do you have any recommendations or no of anywhere less expensive? Thanks in advance!

- Feb 18, '11 by LuvaddisonI paid exactly $1000 for a 3 week full time program (books, uniforms, testing, bp cuff, gait belt and CPR cert) It was well worth it, I learned a lot! My school was at Country Club and Brown in Mesa. It was called RSAA Training Institute but now Its called AZ Medical Training Institute. Hope this helps
- Feb 20, '11 by inspiredRN10I went to AZ Medical Training Institute as well. I did the 6 week weekend program. It was fun and I was able to do it quickly rather than waiting to sign up at a school in the beginning of the semester. And if I am right, I believe they have the highest pass rate for state boards as well. A good option.
- Feb 22, '11 by AZMOMO2Community Colleges have CNA programs. For example gateway and central arizona college. Both are around $71 a credit and the class is I think 6 credits. I went to the CAC CNA class and it took 1 semester because it was 1 day a week but it only cost $421.
Also Gateway has a CNA class and gateway places Gateway students into their programs first. With a CNA from Gateway you could also look into the Fasttrack option.

- Aug 3, '11 by vw74vwYou might want to check out Adult Care Learning Systems. Its a 5 week course M-Thurs 4:45pm-10:15pm for around $500. Check out their website www.adultcarelearning.com.
- Aug 6, '11 by suzannaprzI actually just finished the cna program at adult care learning systems and honestly I feel so unprepared. We had 2 to 3 hour lunches instead of practicing everything we learned in the book we were cramming the last two days. I'm going to study study and look at youtube videos because I honestly need more help on the skills part. It is so true you get what you pay for $500
- Aug 7, '11 by LizzyruGood luck to those of you starting out your CNA training or your new job as a CNA. I took the CNA course from PVCC ($71/credit) and have since worked as a CNA at a LTC, PCT at a hospital and now I am working as a HUC full time and am starting NS this month. You can do it! It's a great intro to bedside patient care and to become familiar with what to expect in the field.
