None of the community colleges offer financial aid for CNA courses in my area and I don't qualify for WorkFirst/WorkSource because I registerd a friends car in my name.
Why do colleges require this as a prereq for RN programs but don't cover it with financial aid? I can't afford $1000+ to complete a class so I'm looking into private scholarships to cover my tuition and fees. It seems like only either the really poor (covered by Workfirst) or rich (who can spend a grand) can now apply to RN programs here because no one else can get into CNA courses!
I would like to know how some of you financed your CNA program and if there is any way to get FASFA financial aid to cover it!
