    There are a few Nursing homes that offer free CNA training but you must agree to work for them for XXX amount of time. Personally, I am not cool with anyone telling me that I have to work for them for any amount of time or else. I am going to attend a free CNA class offered by the VNS of South County Hospital. Its free and you aren't forced to work for anyone (although they prefer you work for South County Hospital or the VNS.) Where are you located in RI and maybe we can help you find a class.

    If any of you have already been accepted into the program, you can apply for a student nurse internship at any of the local hospitals. I have a friend that started nursing last semester (at RIC) and was applying to be a SNA (student nurse associate) at Memorial. I think I may look into this as I will be starting the program in September....and there's no silly 3 month course to go through. I figure the experience will be worth it.....and you get paid (not mega bucks or anything) so that's a plus.

    tinytessa-
    As far as I know, you can apply as soon as you start nursing school. My friend did this last semester when she was in Nursing 220 and 222. I'm definitely going to call around and double check though.

    You should check with convalesant or assisted living facilities.alot of them have classes that the facilitie teachs on the job. you work as a Nursing Assistant until you finish training and go thru certification exam

    Hi, just wondering if you found a free CNA class, I found one in Coventry, It is free, you just have to pay for the book and equiptment + scrubs... And you DONT have to work there after you finish the class...it is at Alpine nursing home, I have heard alot of great things about them, and the instructor is really nice...
