Thank you!!! I am an LPN and in school to receive my RN. However, I am moving forward with my CNA Training Program in Georgia. I thank you for this post, as I didn't even think about how or where to get equipment. Did you send a letter out to vendors, suppliers, etc? How did you get set up to receive students who may be a part of state return 2 work program, reentry programs, etc.
I live in Georgia.
Blessings to you and your mom.
- 0Jan 23, '12 by Mandi3020I am very interested in starting this type of business. I have been an RN for 30 years and my hubby has been one for 5, and our daughter is in nursing school, so I'm hoping we could do this has a family business someday. I know that in the state we live most of the nursing schools require CNA I to enroll in RN school. My daughter signed up for a four week class at the cost of $400.00 (the $100.00 depositis included in the total cost). Her class had 20 people in it and a new class started each week, so obviously the RN who started this business is being successful. I just don't have a clue how to get started. So, I guess my questions for anyone who has done this are: 1. How do you get the certification to teach CNA class? 2. Is a BSN required (both hubby and I have ADN but are in BSN classes)3. How do you get the equipment for the school (beds, BP cuff etc.)? As you can tell from my questions, I don't really know how to start, but would love to learn. I've worked with fantastic CNA's over the years, and they can make such a huge difference in patient care and the RN's day; I'd love to be a part of their education.
Anyway, ANY info is appreciated!

" ...an individual working independently, providing personal care services, may not advertise or represent himself or herself as a Certified Nurse Assistant.
The reason being, that part of the role of CNA is to follow a care plan written by a Licensed Nurse (in California anyway).
