    Since this thread has not had any replies in a few days, I moved it over to the North Carolina Nurses forum with the goal of getting more responses.

    I would recommend CPCC in Charlotte. It is A LOT cheaper. But if money isn't an issue there are programs at Carolinas College of Health Sciences---about $400, not including books, uniforms, or the $92 fee it will cost to be added to the NC registry.. At CPCC, I paid $85 for the class, $15 background check, $40 for the CNA book, and I got my all white scrubs on EBAY for $19(including shipping--Dickies Brand). By the way, CPCC offers a special CNA class during the summer for college students, space is limited so you have to apply early. If you have any questions, PM me.

    Have you attempted to connect with any of the nursing homes in the Charlotte area? I think they may train some CNA's if there is a need. Good luck.

    I looked on the CPCC webpage, but I don't know what the CNA training is under, is there a specific name I should be looking for? I really want to become a CNA and I wanted to train in either the winter or summer because I am a current college student.

    Thanks so much, Have a great day!

    Can't remember off the top of my head...but there is usually a section offered in the summer time only for college students. They only accept a few into it, and it's much faster than the regular one. The couple weeks was online then we transitioned to the classroom for the tests and skills, then clinicals. I would say 6-8 weeks total.

    Hi Nikkey,

    Hope this helps http://www.cpcc.edu/public_safety/health/nurse-aide-i
    if for some reason the link doesn't work then go to www.cpcc.edu I just searched nurse aide and it came up. But nurse aide is classified as Healthcare continuing education

    Also I've been seeing ads for someone offering 2-3day Nurse Aide training around Charlotte. Does anyone have any experience with that and can comment?

    To become a CNA in NC, individuals does not have to graduate from a state approve course. If fact anyone can move to the state of NC and walk off the street and take the state exam and pass. Individuals doing so will have up to 3 tried to pass the written & skills exam before being required to take a college course, even so does that mean the person will pass? Certainly not, some individuals just doesn't have what it takes to enter into the medical field.
