Hi! I am working on my pre nursing classes right now and want to work in the field while I'm going to school.
I'd like to work as a CNA if I can. Can anyone recommended a place to get that in the St. Louis area (I live in Kirkwood)
Thanks in advance!

I'm in the same boat you are! It seems that almost all of the hospitals require you to have your CNA before you can work as a tech (per the Missouri Law), unless you can find one that'll train you, and I haven't had luck getting a call back for any of those
I'm currently at St. Charles Community College and they offer a CNA course. Its open enrollment, I think its 8 or 10 weeks long, class is either one day/week 8-3 or 4? and then you have to set up your clinical hours in addition to that. St. Louis Community College also has a program, I think they call it Nurse Assistant for Nursing Homes, I think its an evening program but every time I try to sign up its already full. I'm planning on doing the SCCC one in the spring.
