I just joined today so I have no idea if this is supposed to be posted strictly in the CNA forum but I think this is an appropriate place too. Dont jump on me if im wrong
I was recently laid off and I'm looking to maybe get some training over the summer in the medical field. I had my heart set on phlebotomy but I missed the class at Marygrove College. Then I heard CNA was a better field. I've looked into Aress institute as well as Abcott institute so far but thats all I've really found, and I don't even know if theyre reputable. I feel really lost...I cant find too many other places for training. I hear about hospitals and LTC facilities offering it, but I cant find it. My questions to my fellow michigan CNA's are:
1) Where can I find a good place? Am I missing something? Where did you go?
2) Are the two places I mentioned above reputable? (Abcott or Aress)
3) Are there any phlebotomist in here?
4) Is there such a thing as PAID training? (like I know you can get it through your employed but I'm talking about government paid)
Thank you so much for your help, guys.
