Need CNA Cert to apply to BSN school

  1. The program I want requires a CNA certification in order to apply. (It's an accelerate BSN.) Can anyone in the DFW area tell me what the best way to go about this is? Where's the best place to go in order to get it? How long does it take? Can you do it part-time? Or is it best to take a sabatical from work and get it done right away. I'm looking for "quick and painless" here, although I'm not sure I'll find it! All you Texas CNAs...Educate me PLEASE!

    This is a post that I sent to another girl who needed a CNA class.

    "OK I found out where to go. Dunbar High School (Ft Worth) has a CNA training program it cost $144 and last about 2 months or so. Classes are 2 days a week for 3 hours. Thats all I could find out I hope that helps..."

    If that doesn't work (and I hope it does because that sounds great!) try checking out the local community colleges.
