Affordable CNA/LPN classes in RVA/Cville?
- 0Jun 10, '11 by caffeineandatropineI'm in Fluvanna (close to Goochland) and am looking for an affordable LPN or CNA class. The CC near me has a CNA class, but it's something ridiculous, like $1200. I'm willing to drive to Richmond if the classes aren't a semester long, just because of gas prices.
Also, how easy is it, once you have your CNA, to get your LPN? Will employers help pay for classes?
- 1Jun 14, '11 by Chrissy97The Best LPN program, my opinion is Henrico County/ St. Mary's Hospital School of Practical Nursing. It's not that well know, but it is amazing. I will warn you it is very hard and fast. They train that way to make not just an LPN, but an awesome Nurse. I graduated 2 yrs ago and it's was only 3,000 all together. Compared to other schools who dont care if you pass or not costing 25,000 or more. I urge you to think about what you want to do. You can get stuck in a "stepping stone" job real quick. I want to be an RN and 2 years I've been stuck as an LPN. If you want to be a nurse, go for it. Most programs you can get your CNA 1/4 to 1/2 way through it. Good Luck
