    Did you want to know about CNA training? You have to go to school for around 4 months to become a CNA. Mission College in Santa Clara, California has a CNA training program. Also check with the other community colleges around your area for CNA training programs. Some private schools also offer CNA training programs.

    WELL FIRST THINGS FIRST WELCOME TO CALIFORNIA. I LIVE IN SOUTHERN CA BUT THE BAY AREA IS NICE. WHEN I FIRST STARTED IN MY NURSING CAREER I BEGAN AS A CNA. :angryfire I HATED IT. I FELT THAT I WAS TO SMART TO BE DOING WHAT I WAS DOING, AND THAT I COULD MAKE MORE OF A DIFFERNCE AS A NURSE AS OPPOSED TO AN ASSISTANT. I WAS A CNA FOR ABOUT 2 YEARS THEN I ATTENDED AN LVN PROGRAM. NOW I AM IN AN RN PROGRAM. I WISH THAT I WOULD HAVE SHOT HIGH WHEN I FIRST STARTED.
    NOT ALL OF US ARE ABLE TO DO THAT THOUGH. CNAS USUALLY MAKE ABOUT 10-12 DOLLARS AN HOUR TO DO THE PHYSICAL LABOR. ITS A VERY PHYSICALLY DEMANDING JOB. BUT THE EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE THAT I GAINED ALLOWED ME TO DO WELL IN SCHOOL. DONT WORRY EITHER WAY YOU DECIDE TO GO THERE WILL BE A JOB FOR YOU. CNAS ARE NEEDED.
    GOOD LUCK
