I am also a student a C-state, I took the CNA course there too, if you can and have time I reccomend the whole quarter class as you have more time work on your skills and what not! My teacher was great and I had a great experience!
I recently applied to good sam/bethesda north and Jewish to be a PCA which is simialar to a STNA, they all said nearly the same thing: if you have a hs diploma and they hire you to be a pca they will train you, they send you to their class which is 4-6 weeks and then you are eligible to take the state test to become an STNA! but you have to work at that hospital. Also like someone else said nursing homes will often train you and yes deaconess also has an STNA program! Threre are also other little places you can take the course but they cost a good chunk of money!
Any ppl from CINCY plse email me! im always looking for new friends in the area as im newly relocated from Columbus (originally from cincy, moved away for college and now im back!) anyway most of my hs friends have moved away and my college friends are back in cbus and scattered around the US! its good to know there are others out there going through the same thing i am!
