I am deciding between two CNA programs. One is at Sac Med Tech in Sacramento Ca, The training breaks down to 50 hours of theory and 100 hours for clinical at a local nursing home. Cost approx $1,100. 21 days to complete.
The second school is through a local Adult Community Program. They could not give me a break down of hours but complete training is 222 hours. Cost $2,100. 9 weeks to complete. The nursing home is ACC (Asian Community Care) where the clinical part takes place. It's about 20 miles one way from where I live, but it is one of the nices upscale nursing homes in the Sacramento area.
I have been working as a Home Health Aide for close to 3 years, however only private in home. My question is, would it be necessary to have a lot more on the job training before taking the California State Test? Given the fact of the extra thousand dollars plus gas money to ACC ?
Could really use some opinions on this. Very Much appreciated
