Affordable nursing assistant programs

Posted

Hey Everyone,

Haven't been on here in close to probably two years. I am having MAJOR issues finding affordable CNA Programs in Las Vegas, NV. If anybody knows of any place I can possible go to, and make monthly payments to obtain my CNA, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Have you tried the local Red Cross?

Also, in some states, you will be reimbursed for the CNA program once you begin work in a nursing home or other medicare facility. Your reimbursement will likely be in payments once every 3 months for 9 months or something like that.

Not sure how you can find out if your state has this option but, try calling the Red Cross, it's how I found out about it.

I paid 1,400. for the program and was reimbursed $1,200 by the state over 9 months as long as I continued to work in a long term care facility.

Call up all of the nursing homes in your area and ask them which CNA program they prefer to get new hires from.

Life care centers offer CNA classes. Call up a lifecare center in your area and ask if they offer it.

Call up all of the nursing homes in your area and ask them which CNA program they prefer to get new hires from.

Also ask them if they provide free training in return for your agreement to work there for a certain length of time.

In California, we have Worksource, which is a stare funded program who pays for training classes for those with low income. It took a couple months to get approval, and it was worth it. They paid for a 2800$ program.

Do they have this in NV?
