I am a recent graduate from this school. I took the CNA course and found that the entire staff was helpful. I am currently waiting to take my state board exam. As soon as i finish i plan to go back and take the PCT course. What really impressed me about the school is that they let me sit in on the CNA class that was in session, because I told them i was not sure it was for me. This is their website in case you are interested: www.manhattaninstitute.com

I also believe that the city gives the CNA class for free, but you have to be on public assistance, and there is also a long waiting list.

YEESH! That is way to much of a hassle! I would much rather have the bandaid effect (pay the money and just get it done and over with..just rip it off) LOL! Get me into the field much faster without having to tap dance around waiting for that magical number to pop up...no mam! LOL!

How long after you finished did you have to wait to take the liscence exam? Did any of you find a job? I am registered to attend their CNA programand would like to know what to expect? I plan on going back for my PCT and was wondering if I should stick with the same school? Also anyone know any info on the Mildred Elley School in NYC for LPN? Thanks

I checked into a few good schools, and so far the Manhattan Institute is on the top of my list. When I called, I spoke to Haley and she was very nice and invited me to come and sit in on a class, talk to the teachers and students. I like that idea and will make an appointment. I will report back after I see the school.

I took the CNA course at Manhattan Institute. I suggest you don't waste your time, money or energy. They are very unorganized. It seems to me that they only want your $$$. They said the course will cost $1399 with everything included, wrong it cost me almost $2,000. I feel there was not enough hands on training for the clinical skills and they were not very helpful with providing the proper instruction. I don't recommend this school. Save your $$$$$$$$!

I also went to the Manhattan Institute for my CNA training, and thought it was a huge waste of $1400+ extras. The weekend teacher is a huge joke!!! He never taught ANY skills. I had to learn all 25 skills on my own through DVD's and several books I bought after the class ended. This is the type of school that just takes your money and doesn't teach. If you are thinking of taking a CNA class, I am saying from first hand experience to look elsewhere. Best of luck to all future CNA's :)
