Free CNA night classes?
- 0Jun 15, '08 by InSearchI have been to countless websites, and searches and have yet to find one that meets at night? I was just wondering if there was anyone out there who has any information that can help me..Thank you
- 1Jun 15, '08 by EkInRIWarwick Adult Education has a CNA class that meets at night but I think they only run it twice a year... like January and September. Google "Warwick Adult Ed" and give them a call. I was signed up for the last session but decided to take my Microbiology that semester at CCRI instead, to get it out of the way. They teach the class at Toll Gate... OH! And it's wayyyyy cheaper than CCRI...

There are classes being offered for CNA training at St. Antoines LTC in North Smithfield R.I. The classes run during the 3-11pm shift, possibly 4p-9p, not sure. Call for details I'm sure they would be more than happy to discuss the details. I believe the classes are free.
- 1Jul 3, '08 by cjcsoon2brn, BSN, RNI know that South County Quality Care does a free CNA class if you live in the southern part of the state. I also know that a few nursing homes throughout the state offer a free CNA class (you will have to call around though) and even if the nursing homes you call don't offer one you could ask and they might know which ones do.

- 0Oct 29, '11 by drolmareikiJust an 2011 update for the Rhode Island people... Warwick is no longer offering classes through their high school (adult ed). On their website, they are referring students to CCRI.
Bristol community college is where I've been taking a few classes that have better hours for me. There is an accelerated 3 week class in Jan during the intersession. Same hours as CCRI, which I think is 120 hours combined in class and clinicals.
For those who need more options, I spoke to some people at Emerson in Milford and they have evening and weekend classes. Its a private CNA school. A little more pricey but they include more (uniforms, books, test fees). They have classes starting every few months.
Bristol CC also has E-health careers, as another CNA option. Additionally they are rolling out their nursing version on E-Health careers in 2012. I think its great! More options.
So, for CNA classes other than CCRI: Emerson and Bristol seem to be the best.
Also the RED CROSS in Massachusetts has classes on weekends. I know New Bedford has classes and there are some other cities close to RI.
Hope this helps others looking for CNA classes near Rhode Island!
