I want to be a CNA, but I need to figure out the best way to go about it. CCAC offers a CNA training course, which is a little over $700. UPMC offers a free nursing assistant, but I think you're required to work a year. If you leave early, the free training turns into a loan you have to pay back. Has anyone had any experience with this? Am I right about the UPMC nursing assistant training? Are there any CNA's in Pittsburgh that can share their experience? Thanks.
