I went to TriC Metro for the STNA program, am currently attending the PCNA training at Cleveland Clinic, and am attending the accelerated program at Kent State University.
I loved the Metro campus of Tri-C. Catherine Quinnie is the professor to get for that course! She's amazing, patient, knowledgeable and FUN!
The difference between PCNA training at CC and STNA training at any other school is that STNA means "state tested" you earn a license. So that means you can work as a caregiver, aka nurses assistant, at any medical facility.
Getting PCNA training at Cleveland Clinic means that you get nursing assistant training however you can't take the state test. So you're not state licensed and you cannot work at any other medical facility due to not being state tested. BIG DIFFERENCE!
However I LOVED my PCNA training at Cleveland Clinic. It's totally current in medical technology and procedures. Very thorough. You must study the guides that they give you for the testing so during the two weeks make sure to take notes and review. For me, working for the Cleveland Clinic has been the best experience! I love it!
Per Kent State University accelerated program. I LOVE both the Geauga and Kent Main Campus. I find it better than the TriC program. KSU is equipped with more modern equipment and technology. A lot closer to the "working experience" than what I've experienced at TriC.
Take a tour of each facility and see for yourself. Take a class at both campuses and then decide. What we love and like may not be your "cup of tea".
