thinking about becoming CNA

  1. I am thinking.......

    Is it worth of getting CNA certificate? I heard that new CNA cannot find a job in Detroit or warren in year of 2013

    Also I was looking at red cross, but their classes cost for CNA is 1,250 which don't include the fee of the exam or scrub

    Any suggestion on where I take CNA test for cheap that is close to warren

    I was looking at old post where student got their CNA classes from redcross that was cheap like $600-700, but I don't know why its so expensive now. Is it because of season like winter? I hope its worth it because I really want to find a job afterward.

    There are CNA classes everywhere; just google where they are in your area. I took mine in Oak Park it was $575 and there are plenty CNA jobs around.

    thank you soo much. I took your advice and I went to register for CNA class in Hazy Institute of Learning . Did the instructors in Hazy Institute of Learning are able to prepare you for the CNA certification exam and did they able to teach you everything that you suppose to know? They didn't give me the textbook when I register, but I will call tomorrow about it.

    When we went out to clinicals everyone was completely prepared so just bear with her!

    I took the CNA course with Red Cross about 6 years ago, it was about $1000 then. I never got certified. I was able to get a job a Beaumont. I now know that Beaumont and other hospitals train you at the hospital. If you apply for the job, and get hired. Its worth saving money and looking into it. I know my floor is in need of SEVERAL Aides.
