doubtful. cna classes are usually hands-on learning. there are probably programs where you can get hired on as a paid employee and trained to be a cna at the same time. many nursing homes do this. this is the website of the ohio nurse aide registry: http://www.odh.ohio.gov/odhprograms/io/nurseaide/nurseaide1.aspx. question #8 and its answer on the faqs link is as follows:

where can i attend nurse aide training classes?

you may call the nurse aide training competency evaluation program ("natcep") at (614) 752-8285 for information about the location of nurse aide training classes.

Local hospitals in the area may do nurse tech/clinical partner training. You may want to research LPN schools (or consider an associate in nursing for an RN) in the area and apply. Some schools will help you find a job in the medical field while you are a student. Other entry level positions in a hospital are in nutrition, cleaning etc. One you are an employee for 6 mo you can often transfer to other positions within the hospital. I find that once you have a foot in the door (in anything) it helps. Also many hospital offer tuition assistance, and this could help with your goals also.
