    Look at area nursing homes and make sure they don't have training. One of the nursing homes where I live consistently does PAID training that lasts ~4 weeks and another has PAID training that lasts ~6 weeks.

    [QUOTE=Twinkle007;6499018]it's a bit far from my area , I live near by Burbank/Glendale , but the price is gr8. You have to add cost of state exam ,books I guess, maybe malpractice , I dont know about stethoscope , or cuffs -probably they will have it. When are you planning to attend?[/QUOT

    No kidding?!?! Utah'n here and the course I took cost me a whole whopping $350 (but $70 out for the test bringing roughly $420) and the course itself was 1 week long with 10 hour classes each day. It was a crapload of class to swallow no doubt but a week after the class was over I was certified we've even had wanderers from our class hail in from California as well! Stayed in a hotel until everything completed might be worth looking in to!

    yes I have , it was overall a very positive experience, we had clinicals in convalescent hospital and I really liked the place. Class was small , 16/17 ppl , we got books , stethoscope , cuffs , uniforms ; we had 2-3 tests weekly after the program was over we took a board exam written and prcatical. We had 2 teachers (RN for theory and LVN for clinical) What else do you want to know?

    Whoa! $2800 for a CNA class? That's a LOT of $. Back in 2009 when I started as a CNA I payed maybe $700 for 6 weeks of training, and book. They have us a CPR training also. Separately I payed for scrubs, a stethoscope, and the state exam was $127 I think. I'm in Florida by the way.
