CNA training

  1. Hi!

    I will be applying to nursing school in October. I want to get a job working in the medical field and I would like to become a CNA to get some experience. Has anybody taken any classes to certify me? I live on Long Island - Nassau County.

    Thanks

    I'm starting my course in July at Winthrop Hospital and I know they have a few more openings. Another great and free place to do CNA training and work is Glen Cove Hospital(North Shore Glen Cove) and I know of someone doing it at LIJ but I haven't heard anything else about it there.

    Hi!

    Is the course at Winthrop free if not how much does it cost? What are the days/hours?


    Thanks for your input.

    It is of no cost, you have to do two weeks in the hospital training from 8-4. After you can pick which shift you want to work, the salary is $15.69/hr plus additional if you work nights or overnight. The human resources contact is Janet Fasano and her e-mail is jfasano@winthrop.org or 663-3799. Glen Cove I heard yesterday offers sessions in the summer and winter break and also are very flexible for students

    Hi!

    That's great to know. I am planning on quitting my library job once I start nursing school so that will be great. I thought that I would have to take a big pay cut but that's pretty close to what I am making now.

    Thanks

    sorry to jump on the band wagon here but i'm looking to find cna training in westchester, ny or nyc - anyone?

    i found one school on-line:
    manhattan institute
    112 west 31 street
    new york, new york 10001
    2nd floor ,
    212-564-1234

    this place offers a course for "certified nurses aide" (4 wks.-day) and one for "nursing tech" (3 wks. -day) i think the courses are like $800 each- i've been trying to get some feedback on these courses. i didn't know there was free training?

    does anyone think it will help if i take one before beginning nursing school in the fall? also i'd like to work pt as well in the medical field while going to school. i've already applied for a few nursing asst. positions but w/o exp. i doubt i will hear back.

    thanks.

    There is ABC training center in the Bronx on Fordham RD. I heard they were great. I should have taken my CNA training there. But didn't.

    Here is the website:
