By the way, if it is true that I have to pay for the program, I get reimbursement after I pass the program?
Found on one of the sites you guys gave to me: http://www.health.state.mn.us/divs/f.../aboutnar.html
[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Nursing assistants who pay for the cost of their training and testing prior to employment are eligible for reimbursement. The nursing assistant has 1 year from completion of the test to turn in receipts requesting reimbursement. The facility has 90 days to reimburse the nursing assistant. If the nursing assistant does not remain employed as a nursing assistant for 90 days, the nursing home is under no obligation to reimburse the nursing assistant. The first nursing home the nursing assistant stays at for a least 90 days would then be responsible to reimburse the nursing assistant if it has been 1 year or less since completion of the test. Only certified nursing homes or boarding care homes are required to reimburse a nursing assistant."
And on another note, I found this site and was wondering if I should register for the program. I want to, but that IS a lot of money. I don't know where I'll be able to get the $625..What's a pre-screening test for reading and comprehension? And what's on it? Read and answer questions of multiple choices?

Another thought, I was reading one of the thread about a woman wanting her brother to be a PCT/CNA, and she mentioned that she once was taking the nursing assistant program & still got paid $12 while being trained..is all nursing homes like that? If so, would someone help me find a nursing home that would allow me to get trained while paid also? I'm not doing it because I want money for luxery and what not, but I'm currently enrolled in College right now and is unemployed
, therefore I can't pay for My tuition and text books. I want work experience in nursing and at the same time work. Eventually, I can't do all three seperate things at once...work (non related nursing; such as cashier, waitress, etc) college and take the nursing assistant program all at once. HELP ME
! I'm googling nursing homes in Minnesota that provide this training-and-paying-job thing all at once, but sadly, I don't believe Minnesota has this type of option in nursing homes *sad
* I wanted to go and get trained in the hospitals near me in Minnesota, but they said on their website that they're no longer taking applicants. *more sadder
