    Get the phone book. Look up long term care centers and call them up and ask. Many train their own aides.

    The Workforce and Continuing Education Department at Panola College in Carthage, Texas, has a grant which will pay for the CNA course, uniforms, help with transportation costs and even daycare to QUALIFIED applicants. Good luck.

    our hospital has a contract with a local college. The course is free to the student. Check with HR

    I've been looking too - thanks for this link! Do you happen to know how much their class is?

    I called them, but the lady is out until Monday. I wonder if its too late to get into the July 7th -15th class. I didnt realize you could get it done that quickly. Are there any other places around DFW that only take a week or so?

    Just in case anyone else was interested in the program through universal health - I just spoke to a lady there and this is the info I got.

    The program is actually 3 weeks long (not sure why the website says only 1 week). The cost is $750 (HOLY COW!), but this cost does include everything from a pair of scrubs to book and a CPR class.

    They do this 3 week long course every other month - the next one starts in Sept. There is also still room in the class that begins on July 7th.

    $750 is a little too much for me - so if anyone else knows a short CNA course (4 weeks or less), please let me know.

    THANKS!
