Is anyone familiar with the CNA course through Gideon Services? Are they reputable? Does someone in Fort Worth offer a better CNA course? Guess, in short I want to know if they turn out good CNA's.
Does Tarrant County College have a CNA class? I've heard they do but only see their 2-year program. (someone at TCC is to call me back on this, but ...)
I found the DADS regulatory list of state approved certification courses and started calling only to find most places no longer offer training. One LTC referred me to Gideon, whom I'd already contacted.
I'm not looking for a short-cut, just a way to start somewhere. Currently, I teach math as a substitute. Since not working is out of the question, (just me & my empty nest here at home) working as an aide seems the best way to gain experience while completing the pre-reqs for a BSN.
TIA for all your help. Oh so many questions. (hope this doesn't count as a double post :uhoh21: , since I asked the same question in another thread, but didn't hear back yet, and I'm going to talk to them tomorrow)
It worries me that most schools suggest not working or at most working only 12 hrs/week while in school. Also worries me to pieces that 4.0's are wait-listed or turned away. Yikes!!
