I would really like to become a certified nursing assistant. I live in the San Diego area. Are there any AFFORDABLE accelerated programs here? Maybe on the job training, online training or affordable community colleges. While trying to do research on my own I found several shady sounding things. I also kept seeing people who said they got paid training but I've yet to find anything on my own. I was hoping that someone who actually has experience could shed some light on the process for me.
