    Hello Sguth16,

    Actually, I was looking into this profession before I got accepted into nursing school and I found the information on my own via Google. There are a ton of options out there and they usually have packages that include training and equipment, etc. It can be rather expensive, but your success ultimately depends on what you make it and the money you put out to get started you can definitely make that money back double-triple fold and more! Hope this helps...feel free to PM me if you need any more info.

    Take care,
