Im looking for information on Long Island CNA training programs and/or LPN programs. I know that Wintrop offers a CNA program but im not sure where else or what the program entails.. I live in Huntington so any hospitals/programs in this area would be optimal. Any information on this would be great!! Thanks

There is an LPN Program in Suffork County. I am not so sure the name. If I am not wrong it got to be Wilson or Lewis Tech School. Hopefully, someone will give you the answer.

Regarding to CNA, it is very hard to get a job, but it is a requirement to enter the LPN Program. The only thing you have is the agency, but you don't get work very often, plus the agency does not pay the CNA that much.

I hope I will help you somewhat.

Good luck!

sigh! I wish someone told me this before I spent money on a CNA course last year...I actually considered taking phlebotomy and EKG, but decided against taking the chance of spending another couple hundred dollars, only to still NOT be able to find a job...especially since the only experience I have is about 4 months as an HHA...(I don't think nursing homes think HHAs do much but assist the elderly in grocery shopping, laundry or something like that) sigh!:o

Always think + and keep your head up...

I was "down and low" before becoming an LPN.
