Looking for CNA training programs in Memphis

  1. Well. I'm having second thoughts about going to Concorde College because it's expensive ($4.000+) and now I'm trying to find some CNA programs that's a little cheaper. Can someone tell me where I can go! Also I was told about Vital can someone give me someone info.

    If you think you might like to try LPN first, try Tennessee technology center http://www.memphis.tec.tn.us/programs.htm
    NA programs are all over the place, but I don't know which are actually going to get you certified. Try here: http://www2.state.tn.us/health/HCF/t...iesregions.htm

    I too ran into the same problem with Concorde and I still am not CNA certified but I found the whole list of training facilities in Shelby County. It is at http://www2.state.tn.us/health/HCF/N...?CountyCode=79
    If that doesn't work go on the tennessee.gov website and type in "Nurse Aide Training Facilities" in the search. Only thing with that list is you have to be careful because a lot of the facilities are statused as inactive and are no longer certified. Make sure the status says "active". Hope this helps.
    PM me if you need more info.

    Check your local hospital, I did and they had a program that was very inexpesive. $133 for the entire course. They alternate courses from evening one time to days another time and they have a 98% state passing rate, meaning if you pass their final more than likely you will pass the state test. I have also heard that the Tennessee Technology Centers also have a CNA program for around $800. I am not sure about that though as I have not checked into it. I hope this helps.
