Hi everyone,

As a perspective pre-nursing student I am trying to land some kind of a job in the healthcare field while I am in school to take my pre-reqs. First, I need a job to pay my bills, and second, I would like to gain some health-related experience before I apply to the nursing school. As I mentioned, I am a student, therefore, paying for a CNA course in NYC will truly break my bank.

To those of you who are certified CNAs and PCTs, do you have any advice or information on a trusted CNA school to attend, or a free CNA/PCT course offered in NYC, hospitals, LTCF or clinics. I would very much appreciate your help!!!!

Find out if your state will reimburse you for your CNA training. You may be surprised!

You can ask any potential training program if your state does this.

I did my training at the American Red Cross.
