I currently live in Florida, there's plenty of opportunities available down here work wise for CNA's, nurses, etc. I'd like to take the necessary steps to become a CNA. I've decided to take this career path because in January I'll be able to attend school again to begin studies for an ASN. I think this will be helpful while I'm going to school so I can at least become familiar with healthcare and get a bit of experience along the way. Unfortunately I'm not sure exactly where to search for classes to become a CNA. I have family members in different healthcare fields, they've all suggested trying to find a facility that is willing to pay for the CNA classes, then I'd work for them upon completion, I'm having trouble with this though. All I can seem to find are facilities looking for people who are already certified. Any suggestions?
