CNA in OK

  1. 0
    Hi all, I am currently looking for a good CNA program in the Tulsa/Owasso area and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations? I am looking into taking either evening or weekend classes for my CNA. Right now it looks as if I will be attending Interim health care's december CNA program, has anyone heard anything good/bad about Interim? Anything would be helpful about now as I am rather clueless about all of this lol.

    I live in the Owasso area and I went for 16 Saturdays to Tulsa Tech on North Peoria from 8-5 and the program was excellent. I had great teachers. Go to http://www.tulsatech.org/pdf/st_spring_07.pdf and on page 39 it shows my teacher (Livingood) teaching Saturdays from 5/5 to 9/8 on Saturdays. The class will fill up. Call 828-2000.

    I have known about 4 people who went to Wings but they did not have favorable comments.

    Another option is the PCT program at TCC but I don't know if that is hard to get into.

    THere is a place called wings there is an office in Broken Arrow, and another that I think is somewhere on west 11th street, like past yale maybe.
    I have no personal exp with wither , but it seems someone else on here mentioned them before and they did not have anything negative to say about them.
    Most of the hospitals will train also.
    Good luck.

    Here is the Link to apply for Nurse Tech training to work at Saint Francis.
    SaintFrancis.Com - Career Center

    At Southcrest it says CNA preferred, it doesn't say required. This sounds like they would train.

    There's also a place called DreamMakers. I have a friend who did their program and I think it was only maybe 1-2 weeks fulltime. I did mine at Tulsa Tech.

    I went to DreamMakers School for Health Care Aids. I really enjoyed it and they really knew what they were doing. It was a full day two week course. One week in the classroom/laboratory and one week working supervised at one of 3 hospital sites.

    Betty is the owner, she's an RN who's worked in ortho (with my mom actually ) for many years and she LOVES to teach. They have an LPN in with them who does the practical side of things, and I learned soooo much from her. In fact, I'd LOVE to shadow her around just for the things I had learned. Hillcrest will definitely hire those from DreamMakers, and sometimes will actually pay for the training. I highly recommend DreamMakers. Everyone is awesome there.

    Thank you all for your help! i actually enrolled friday for Interim Healthcare's december cna class. I hope it all goes well! Anyone have experience with Interim by chance? A friend of mine went there and she seemed to like it so hopefully I will too. I'm kinda nervous about it though, this is really my first time in any type of "nursing" class!

    My experience with Interim here in Tulsa, was a good one. They have day 9a to 1p and evening 6p to 10p. There are also certain facilities that hire, Interim CNA grads right away, I've been informed.
