I am 20 years old and a Pre-nursing student. This summer I am taking my CNA course to be certified by July. I don't make a lot of money since I am still in school and I get no help from my parents. My 5 week CNA course is $1060 and I still have to pay to get all of my vaccinations done and buy my scrubs and shoes. Would it make sense to take out a student loan at Wells Fargo to pay for classes and I make payments on the loan. I AM FREAKING OUT AND SO STRESSED. I need some advice!!!
I am SO excited to become a CNA and i just want to figure this out ASAP!

That's great that you're wanting to get your cna license, but isn't there somewhere you can go that will train you for free? If I were you, I'd just get a part-time job doing something easy that will bring in a little income while in school. If you're really wanting to be a cna, just wait till after your first semester of nursing school...that way you'll be able to do cna work at a hospital/ LTC without having to pay all that money.
