I only know of two training programs. 1199c traning and upgrading fund, pn program and prism healthcare. i don't know the addresses but this should get you started.
(please excuse any spelling/gramatical errors)
Please, don't bother with the 1199C training & Upgrading Fund program unless you are already in the union.
This program has been in exsistence since the 1990's, yet STILL DOES NOT have the neccessary accreditations that are needed for a prospective student to obtain federal/state grant, scholarships, and loans; so if you are considering this school and need finanical assistance, you will need to take out a private loan.
Most people can't/won't do this, as this type of loan normally must begin repayment the month after the monies are dispersed; one of the reasons people go to school is to earn more money and rarely have the funds available to take out/repay a loan at that time.
I know this because I looked into the program back in the '90's when it first opened (it opened when the School District of Phila closed the James Martin LPN program @ Swenson-the superintendent at the time stated that the district should not be providing educational/vocational opportunies to adult students who have already received either H. S. diplomas or GED's), and again back in 2006-nothing about their status had changed in that time. The person talking with prospective students omitted this when discussing payment options-she continuously stated that students would need a personal loan to pay for the program; she only spoke about the school's accreditation status when directly asked if it been obtained & how would not having it affect a potential student's ability to obtain financing thru traditional educational avenues.
