Does anyone know where I can get certification to be a CNA in the Buffalo area. I've considered phlebotomy as well but it's too expensive for what you'll be making. In my school, it's about $1200 not including the book, too much! Does anyone know any place that they would recommend? I'd pay $500 or $600 to do this. I almost got hired in a nursing home but I couldn't go through with it because I couldn't get a reference from my clinical course since I didn't pass it. I'd appreciate any help!
