Looking for CNA Training in NY, need help deciding!

  1. 0
    Hi, I live in queens ny and dont know where to go for my cna training. Ive brought it down to these:
    • NY Career Medical Training Center (in flushing)
    • The Manhattan Institute
    • CUNY York College
    • CUNY Laguardia
    • Suffolk County Community College

    I am not sure if CUNY Queens College or CUNY Queensborough Community College have CNA programs...

    If you have gone to these schools please tell me your experience and Id also like to know if these schools offer Job Help. Any contribution will be appreciated! Thank you for helping a fellow student out <3

    P.S - Another Option I've been looking for is CNA training through hospitals where they trian you for free but you have to commit 1-2+ years to them. I've been calling all the hospitals in my area but no one offers this kind of thing. Id LOVEE it if you know of any hospitals in nyc / long island that offer this kind of thing.

    Sometimes nursing homes do free training too. I did mine at st. James medical center on long island. Good luck!

    Isabella Geriatric Center does CNA training. It's located in Manhattan. You can look them up online. Their starting pay for CNAs is good also.

    Cross Manhattan Institute off your list. If your read some of my past posts you'll see why. Good luck

    I did not have to commit any time with them. However ... I intended on working at their facility, as they promised to hire us, then after our class graduated they hired none of us do to cuts made by the new owners. I went on a job search and I got a job at a local state hospital. I'd say it worked out great! I paid nothing for the certification (which often costs people thousands) and got a state job within a month!
