i forgot to post the information for those that need it. i only have info on training in syracuse, ny. here it is! :nuke:

there is free training at james square health and rehabilitation. they hire new people for training quite frequently. it is six weeks of unpaid training. once you are hired they give you a $1000.00 bonus over the course of 6 months. they are always looking for people. they will also hire you as an 'environmental unit aide' over the summer. great for nursing students in the area.

here is their website:


st. camillus health and rehabilitation also offers a cna training program. i am not sure how long it lasts but it is paid training.

here is their website:


ocm boces also has a medical assistant program. it is not free but financial aide is available and i am sure it wont be super expensive.

here is their website:


i recently found about this place called birchwood. never heard about it before my class. towards the bottom there is a little blurb about cna training classes. their contact info is a little hard to find so here it is:

birchwood health care center

4800 bear road

liverpool, ny 13088

phone: 315.457.9946

here is their website:

best of luck to you all! :redpinkhe take care,

I just took training in Syracuse at Iroquois Nursing home but they aren't doing any more for a while... James Square Nursing home is having one soon I am not sure when exactly but its on their website it should have it on there. Its a free training :) I live about 40 miles outside of Syrause. and work in Jamesville at Iroquois... It was on their website, I don't know what the cutoff was date wise but I know they do a few a year anyways... You can always call!?
