Before I called them, I didn't know they had a fast track program either until I asked. But they will sit down with you and create a degree plan and tell you which pre reqs you need.. I need ALOT.. but I'm going to do it this summer and fall.. at El Centro and Eastfield.
I'm getting my CNA at this place in Mesquite called Maria's Career Institute. It's a $475 - 3 1/2 week program with 3 days of clinicals. I have one more week of class before the clinicals. It's pretty inexpensive and comes with healthcare level CPR...
My plan is to use the CNA to get a Patient Care Tech job at ANY hospital, so that by the time next year rolls around, I will have plenty experience as a PCT to get a job at Texas Health Resource. Of course I will be trying to get a job there initially too.
Problem is, if any one portion of my plan falls apart (CNA, Hospital, THR).. then I'm sunk..
I don't want to wait another year to goto school, and I certainly don't want to attend school for two entire years.
