Alexandria, VA Red Cross CNA course

Nurses General Nursing


Hello all, I am considering the Alexandria, VA Red Cross CNA course. Has anyone taken this? How did you like it? Did you find a job easily? I am looking into CNA work while I do my nursing BSN prereqs.

What is the average pay for a CNA in the DC (VA, MD) area?


Hey there! I have the exact same questions. I was wondering if you had found some answers about the CNA program the Red Cross of Alexandria, VA. I'm actually planning to take it this month but I'm still in search for reviews for this program.

I just finished the Red Cross CNA course in Old Town (Red Cross office at 123 Alfred Street) December 2010

The day course is team taught by two RN's who have something like 60 years nursing and administration experience between them. They are a wonderful team who teach with situations, real examples and text.

They emphasize compassionate care and focus on comprehending real people.

When we did the clinical week in the medical unit of a residence, they were always present and supportive.

I felt we had received better instruction than some of the other nursing students we met that same week from another institution.

The night course is taught by other instructors, but I do believe the day course was better run.
