I personally went through the one at Lawson. It was around $500 and was taught by a old diploma nurse. She was a nurse for like 60 years. She was dry through and really particular when it came to the skills but I can definitly say that she equipped us with the necessary knowledge to succeed. When I went to a interview at St. Vincents the charge nurse who interviewed me was really impressed I was talking about "scope of practice" and nutrition diets for patients conditions and ect.. She even made the remark that I knee more than they're people who pay 1000+ for jerimahs hope( st. Vincents CBS, EKG, phlebotomy class). Needless to say I was offered the job but had to decline because I go accepted into nursing school at jeff state for the summer and by the time I finished with orentation I would have started shook and with my school schedule there was no way I could commit to 4 12's a week. I was also offered a job at childrens but couldn't take it for the same reason but the lady who interview me told me that she would hold me a job till after I complete first semester guaranteed!!

Also my CNA teacher taught us basically everything! Looking in my fundamentals book the only stuff I don't know how to do is stuff out my scope of practice ( injecting, feeding tubes, inserting ostomys, medications)

Also I wouldn't do gadsden. It may just my opinion but I don't think that a CNA class shouldn't have to be applied to like a nursing program... Ijs..

Thanks for your response! I m glad to hear that the Cna program is good at Lawson. You are so right about Gasden state, I was like all this for the program.The only reason why I was considering them, is because they say you train for 2 skills in their program. Also what is the work keys assessment at lawson? Also what times did you go to class? How were your clinicals scheduled?
