    If you're willing to drive west to the Fort Worth side of the metroplex, Fort Worth Nursing and Rehab Center offers free CNA training. Their telephone number is (817) 698-0490 if you're interested.

    Do you happen to have any info on this place - such as how long the course is, hours/days, how long you have to work for them (I'm assuming if they pay for it, they will want you to work for them, right?).

    I'm back & forth on when to get started with a CNA class. I'm very close to finishing up all the pre-reqs for NS and not sure if I can squeeze CNA in with my classes right now and still make good grade. I'm thinking early next year some time would be perfect for me.

    Hi. I would really appreciate it if I can get some feedback on this. What are some good or great nursing aide/CNA schools in the Dallas-Fort Worth area? I would like to attend a CNA school with a good reputation and that has a good job placement assistance program. Any feedback will be thankful.

    I am working on my prerequisites for nursing school and I decided to get my cna training. TCC and Dunbars' cna training program are full. I am looking for a place that offers night classes because I have children. Harris Methodist Fort Worth said they will offer training in Sept. but they will not give me information about it. I don't know if their classes are in the morning. If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate it!

    Thank you

    I called the Fort Worth Nursing and Rehab Center. They want you to work their after you receive training. I plan on working at Harris Methodist after I get trained. I don't mind paying for the training as long as its not a ridiculous amount.

    You should check with convalesant or assisted living facilities.alot of them have classes that the facilitie teachs on the job. you work as a Nursing Assistant until you finish training and go thru certification exam

    I'm in Nursing school now but I went to nurses aid academy in lancaster, tx (south DFW) its around $400 and 4 weeks of classes plus a week break and then you test with the state. They provide the book so all you need is scrubs.

    A little late in the discussion but Baptist Memorial in San Angelo, Texas is offering free CNA training and certification. They will pay you while in training. That is how I am getting my foot in the door.

    In Texas, go to:

    Then look on the provider list link on the left of screen. there is a free class in Ft Worth. Dunbar, takes 2.5 months. Best value I found was Nurse Aide Academy in Lancaster; $450 & takes 4 weeks for school & another 3 until test.
