I've been looking into CNA classes and came across several schools in the Detroit area. It seems there are schools popping up everywhere. Before I pay my money I need to know if any of these schools have a good reputation. Could anyone tell me anything about the following schools:
Greater Horizon Training Instiitute
Precise Health Care Training Institute
Hazy Institute of Learning
Career Essentials Learning Center
( I know I spelled reputable wrong, I tried to correct it but it wouldn't let me!)
why not go try a college, most offer the course
At the moment I'm taking pre-reqs for nursing and having a certificate for CNA or other qualified medical careers can increase points needed to get into WCCCD's nursing school. I need a program that will take no longer than a months time. Also, I need a job.... why not start as a CNA to give me first hand experience with working with real patients.
The schools I listed in the prior post have CNA programs that will take up to 4 weeks to complete. I just don't know who's reputable and who's not.
Most college courses that train for CNA that I have come across tend to be a lot more expensive than going through the Red Cross. I did the program recently, it was $900 and they really prepare you well, since a lot of the RNs who train you have actually administered state testing as well so they teach you skills in a way that you will pass!
WOW $900 for a CNA class!! That is insane!! I am currently taking one in westland through nexcare health systems. They are behind Four Chaplins nursing home which is where you do clinicals. There cost is $675. This also includes your books. You need $400 down. They have day classes 9 to 330 monday through friday which is 3 weeks. They have night classes as well but they are four weeks because the class time is cut short. It's monday through friday 5pm to 10pm.
I currently attend HealthCare Soultions in Detroit (W. Mcnichols and Greenfield area) 313-270-4550. Tuition is $575 and they have payment plans with just $200 down. I did my research and they're the cheapest. Although they're cheap the quality of the education is great. I got alot of good referrals before I started. Besides the course is only 2wks long (mon-fri 8:30-4:00) but they have night classes also. My last day is friday!
do you know if nexcare has a LPN program?
Yes Nexcare does have an LPN program it is located at Four Chaplains Nursing Home. I think it is on its first class now and another class will start in January.
777RN, BSN, RN
Some nursing homes offer their own "free" nursing assistant course in exchange for working there. The Beaumont facilities did this at one time, but I don't know if this is still the case. You might consider checking some of the higher-end facilities in the area to find a reputable program.
Hope this is helpful and good luck!
How are the health benefits for CNA's?
I picked up some info today from the your school (nexcare) I was thinking about taking the CNA and maybe the LPN. Do you know any students in the program (LPN) and what they may say about it? I was also wondering what you guys think about the fact that they are not accredited? :icon_roll Thank you for your time.
From your question I decide to get a CNA training and attend Health CARE Solution between fall and spring semister at wcccd. $ 575.00 thank you
