Nau has 6 week courses on cna with i think 90 man hours. Its 650
I went to NAU and it cost $650 for the class. You have a $50 book rental, and then the professor will, probably, want you to buy certain colored uniforms and you will need at least 2 of those. (about $20 per top and bottom) Also if you don't have a job and are borrowing money to get through this class you will want to factor in the gas it will take to get to and from NAU and anywhere else you will "have" to go during the 6 week classes, and testing date. Oh and don't forget the CPR/AED certification class at another $20. I went to NAU in Overland Park, KS and I live in Lee's Summit, MO. I borrowed $1000 and had NO JOB at the time. I wanted to be sure that I had the money for anything that might crop up. I really don't want anyone to feel discouraged by what I have written. I loved the professor we had there and she was very open and up front about everything during class. She even made time some days to work one on one if you needed it and was ALWAYS there for about 10 miinutes after class to help for immediate questions. I ended up spending all of the $1000 to get myself started.
My one piece of advice that you will NEVER be able to beat......Buy your uniforms from someone else that doesn't need or want them anymore. I bought mine from a craigslister and got a whole wardrobe of uniforms for $35 and you DON'T need to buy the $90 nurses shoes unless required by the place that you are working.
