Seeking Part-time CNA training in N Del

  1. I am a part-time student who would like to become CNA certified while I pursue my nursing degree. Are there any New Castle County, Delaware CNAs or other healthcare professionals who can provide any feedback on local evening or weekend CNA training programs?

    I have contacted the state agency, obtained the list of approved programs, but am really just looking for feedback from someone who is in the field and knows about the programs either firsthand, or by working with people gone through the training.

    Or...I've found a number of full-time programs with free tuition, but does anyone know of programs that help aspiring CNAs finance 2 months without earning a wage?

    Thanks for your help!

    I have heard of the hospitals training you to be a Patient Care Tech.

    If you are a nursing student, ask your instructor, but I think you can get the CNA's license pretty easily (without taking a class) after you complete your first semester of nursing school.
