Trying to find a program

  1. Can anyone help me find the closest program to my area for a CNA/PCA/STNA training program? I know a nursing home in my home city will train, but they require you to work there immediately following and I cannot because I attend school elsewhere. Additionally, we are not a big fan of the nursing home (pulled my great-grandmother out).

    Zip code: 44281... it is about 15 mins west of Akron, OH

    Thank you

    Maybe try calling some of the local hospitals and seeing if they know a school that would teach you.
