Hello. Has anyone graduated or plan on going to sac med training school for there cna program? If you did graduate from there did you like it were you able to find a job afterwards? Any information much appreciated.
I completed CNA training there at Sac Med about 11 months ago. I had never worked as a caregiver or in a medical setting before. I learned so much and had a good time. L*t* was a fantastic instructor and clinicals were awesome. I was able to find get 3 job offers ( 1 full time and 2 on call) within weeks after taking my state exam.
I'm in LVN school now and there are at least 4 of us who attended SacMed at different times in the class.
Feel free to pm me or ask more questions on here if you have any!
As a CNA, I have has jobs paying $9-11.30 per hour. While this is not a lot of money, it has been a decent supplement because I was in school taking prereqs for the RN/BSN program at the time. I work on call and the flexibility will be important as I continue through nursing school.
I graduated from Sac Med Training June 2010. I recommend this program. This is one of the cheapest programs in the Sacramento Area and you are in and out in 19 days. I currently work in an Assisted Living Facility.
Hello TriceCna that's wonderful I am going to be taking the weekend classes so it will take me a little over 3 months to finish but I'm excited I'm glad to know you had a good experience. Did it take u a long time to find a job?
It depends on where you work. I work at a Assisted Living Facility. Since my facility does not require you to have a CNA license, I think they take advantage of this. I do feel like I am underpaid. I do not mind because I attend school full time and they work with my schedule. In addition, I do not receive holiday pay or time and a half.
