    You know I went through the same thing I think my class was $550 4 weeks but this school had hired a new teacher so the teacher that I saw in orientation who was an experienced teacher and nurse was not the same instructor I had when we showed up to class. He was very nice but he didn't have a CLUE on how to teach this class I mean, he would spend hours on videos when we should have been in the lab learning how to making beds and measuring input and output. When did spend a little time on weighing a patient and transferring a patient from bed to wheelchair in other words like you said I got my diploma or certificate what ever you want to call it in Feb 09 and haven't even sat for the Certification that test is $107 and I don't want or need to take a test that I would fail. Grant it I still don't have a job but I am $107 richer LOL !!! I am going to take an LPN Program this fall though. Oh and the good thing is the instructor said that I had the Highest Average in the Class and if I ever needed a recommendation he would gladly give it to me so I guess that class was'nt as bad as I thought it was I did actually learn a lot I guess I just wish I had gotten more hands on! It's really worth have a rigorous program rather than one you can just breeze through.

    As mention before a nursing homes offer free training sometimes. You should also check out the red cross.

    Free CNA training is a thing of the past. You should try a private school like me. I actually finished in 4 weeks and got my certification. I went to Dekalb Education Center and they only charged me $450. If you want you can call them at (404) 299-1271. Good luck with your search and I hope you can find the school.

    satisfiedgraduate, did it take you a long time to get a job after completing your program? I've read blogs where people have said it's better to go to a technical college, but im not sure. Also, what did the $450 include? (ie; books, uniform, stethascope, etc...)

    I was skeptical about the program as well but the admissions rep worked with me and was willing to answer all my questions. And believe me, I had a bunch of questions. The job part was easy because they had a good placement department. I say just give them a call.

    In had a great experience with a private school. I went to a smaller school. The class size was smaller about 16 students. The instructor was great!! and really spent a lot of time making sure we were comfortable and competent to take the exam. I think smaller private schools are good it really just depends on what instructor you get will determine how much you learn and how well you do. All together it was about $800.00 not too bad of a price. Red cross charges 1,200 but when you have a good quality program that really preapres you, It is worth it. Dont diss all small schools because of a bad instructor. I have a friend that went to a community college in a big class and she hated it. Sometimes you just get a bad instructor that does not care about you but there are a lot of good ones that do.
