CNA Training in Philadelphia

  1. 0
    Hi All. I'm new to Philadelphia (just paid my second month's rent!) and ultimately want to become an RN. I'm currently working in Real Estate, and it's ok, and a second job in food service. I'd like to get some health care experience and becoming a CNA seems to be the best way to do it while waiting for instate tuition and to save up for a bit.

    I'm looking for CNA training programs in Philadelphia, and for some reason I'm having issues with the google search- I'm just turning up a lot of directory pages that just lead me to more searches and whatnot. So, where to go for CNA training in the city? Are there any places in the city that would offer free training in exchange for me committing to work there as a CNA?

    Any advice, links, program names would be appreciated.

    I'm not sure where in Philadelphia you're at, but there's a good program at Bucks County Community College...

    Community College of Philadelphia has an amazing nursing program. However, submission to be accepted is over this year, and you must apply beginning next winter for the 2009 program. You can try Northeastern Hospital, which is a branch of Temple, Drexel, or Bucks County Community. Good lyuck in Philadelphia.

They offer day and night classes full time and part time. Also Community College Of Phila offers something . Good luck! It was Clinical Pathways on Harrison st.

    A good resource for finding nursing homes that are state approved to offer nurse aide training classes in PA is at From what I understand many facilities will cover the expenses for your training, unlike community colleges or private schools. Good luck
