    so i called arc today and asked about their cna program. i also visited their website and printed out the requirements. there are 6 prerequisites and they are all quite simple. check out: web.arc.losrios.edu/catalog0506/nursing-alliedhealth.pdf

    the program is 6 units and costs $26 per unit so the total is $156 not including books. upon completion of the class you are prepared to take the cna state certification exam! hope that helps.

    Does anyone know where I can get CNA training in the Sacramento area?

    I think more than anything I'll go for my CNA. In California, it seems as though there is no demand for LVN's. But I've seen alot of job opening for CNA's. I am just a confused 22 year old who has no idea what to do with herself. lol. I have so many interests. I really wanna do Labor and Delivery eventually. But I gotta start somewhere and atleast ive realized Medical Assisting isnt too good of an idea.

    Thanks for the advice. The main reason I want to do my CNA or LVN first is so that I can get some experience in the field first. I want to get a good idea of what its going to be like

    OMG wow that's amazing. That's definitely something I need to look into now. If i Can kill two birds with one stone that'd be even better. I had no idea that after being in an LPN course for 8 weeks I can take the test for CNA. You just made my day! I will look into that right now!!!!!!!

    Hello everyone. I made a post last week looking for advice. Here I am again. I am currently in school for Medical Assisting. I am now learning that working as a Medical Assistant will not benefit me on my path towards becoming a Registered Nurse. I am now considering switching schools and pursuing my CNA to get my foot in the right door and some experience under my belt. Then later apply for the RN program. Does this sound like a better idea? I am open to all aspects of advice.

    I am smack dab in the middle of my schooling at Heald but am willing to make the change for the benefit of the doubt!

    Thanks everyone who replies to this post. I am just so confused.

    Thank you all for your support. I am glad i now understand that being an MA has nothing to do with becoming an RN. I am looking into some schools in my area for LVN. I think that is a little more in the right direction. My next question now is: most of the LVN programs in my area are diploma only not AA degree. For those of you in the field, is that going to make a big deal? I dont want to switch schools for a diploma and not be able to get a job as an LVN. Sorry for so many questions. I know not alot about this, obviously hahaha!!!! Thanks again. Keep the answers flowing. I need to know as much as possible!!!

    I guess my next question would then do medical assisting classes transfer over to the RN program for pre-reqs? I just am starting to get under the impression that doing an MA program is a waste of time and that I should be taking nursing classes. Ugh so stressful. Thanks for the help!!!

    Hello. My name is Kisha. I am currently attending Heald College for the Medical Assisting program. Upon completion I will receive my AA degree. In the future I want to go back to school for my RN and work in Labor and Delivery. I have been looking at other schools and other programs. My main interest being LVN. I am here to simply get advice from as many people as possible as to what you think I should do. Thanks so much!!
