    Try a web search on the net to find areas near you. You may also be able to get it thro your state BON. If there are any nursing schools near you, the school may be able to get you the info. My local tech school hired me and sent me to the TTT class and paid for it. (About $500!) Go for it...it is fun and I love teaching NA classes.

    You might try your states CNA registry for info. When I was in Iowa I took the course through the local community college.

    In California LVN"s are the only nurses
    (that I am aware) who teach CNA classes.
    They are paid $26.00 / hr. Hence, no shortage of CNA teachers.

    Penn State University in Pennsylvania. Call Pennsylvania State Nurses Association, they usually have dates/locations.

    Actually, I just finished my CNA course, and my teacher had a BSN in Nursing and a Masters in Theology. And she was wonderful ... hated the class but loved the teacher! Made me want to be a teacher myself some day ....

    I taught a couple of CNA classes. Had to be an RN to be the lead instructor but LPN/LVNs could be Clinical Instructors. I worked through the local community technical college through the continuing education department.

    Had to submit a resume and credentials to the Nurse Aid Training Board through the local Medicaid Agency for approval as well as with the community college. They seemed to want those who had been a CNA in the past. I started as a CNA and worked my way up to where I am now, on the regulatory side of long term care.

    I really enjoyed teaching. The Medicaid agency had someone come out an inspect us while we were teaching and doing hands on in the clinical setting.

    Good Luck!

    I BECAME A CNA THROUGH A PROGRAM AT THE NURSING HOME I WORKED AT IN PA. THE TEACHER WAS A RN BUT I'M NOT SURE IF SHE HAD TO BE.
