Hello! I think your best bet would be to find a local nursing home or LTC and ask them if they offer the classes. Many of these places will pay you to train and give you a job when you complete the course. Or, if you have a BOCES in your area, many of them offer some form of assistance. I was able to leave my son in daycare at the BOCES while my class was going on (My wife also works full-time). Hope this helps.

State-Approved CNA (Nursing Assistant/Aide) and Medication Aide Training and Testing On-line. CNA Exam Challenges, also. AHA Basic Life Support, CPR, and First Aid

For those who think they can successfully challenge (only 1 chance to pass) the MT-State CNA Exam, I have an online Home-Study CNA program which includes teacher direction, communication and feedback. It is about half the cost of taking the class, but, of course, it is missing the on-site lab/clinical practice. For those with some education in NA-type skills and/or those who are excellent self-learners/educators and have the self-discipline to study, study, study the theory information and PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE the MT CNA skills according to the MT CNA Handbook, this may be a viable and desirable option, especially for those unable to easily attend a lab/clinical for some reason.

One still has to be able to come on-site to take the MT-State CNA Exam, which takes about 2.5 hours. There is no way of not doing this if you want to be certified by the state.

Out-of-staters may possibly be able to take the MT state CNA Exam and then apply for certification in their state by reciprocity. The regulations for each state are different (Many do grant certification by reciprocity.), so these need to be consulted first, if you are thinking of doing this.

The Workforce Development Centers, Job Service Agencies, Vocational Rehabilitation Training Centers often will often fund CNA training for those in need. They do here.

www.keepandshare.com/doc/view.php?id=518462&da=y This is the list of state NA registries.
You can only challenge if your state allows it. MT does allow this, but I do not know what other states do. Maybe you could challenge in a state does, and then get licensure in your state IF your state issues licenses by reciprocity.

You can sometimes find nursing homes that offer a class for free but it rarely happens in this state, and I do not know about others.

Any STATE-APPROVED program anywhere in the U.S. is going to require some onsite lab/clinical training(16 hrs minimum by federal law and 25 min by MT state law. See http://161.7.8.64/QAD/natcep_regs_stateplan.pdf#home,page 25 with federal in left colum and MT state law in right column). Any program that is totally online is not state-approved and would only by a possibility in 1 of the few states that allows challenging the state exam (like MT or FL). When someone "challenges" the exam (in those states that allow this), they have 1 chance to pass the ENTIRE exam. If the person does not pass any part of it, they have to take a state-approved program before he/she can retake the state exam.

If anyone could help, thanks in advance. I also saw this website, www.cnatrainingcourseonlineeducationprogram.com/home but its only done in Florida and I'm in California.

Those classes will start in May and you have to go in person for the lab hours and also attend 72 hours of practice in some nursing home.

Here is the official california website for Certified Nurse Assistant's, so that you feel secure you have the right information. I worked 15 years as a CNA/HHA and I dealt with a variety of issues in many settings, so it is vital you go to school and get hands on training. Which will include interacting with real patients that you need to learn how to care for, assist feeding and bathing and transferring from wheel chairs to bed and vice versa, and this is something you can't get from on line training. Best of luck to you.

And while though it's true you may find on line training, it can't be suffiecient in teaching you hands on skills and it may very well not be accredited,licensed or certified or approved in your, for you to use this training to work in your city and or state. So you must be very careful of this sort of thing. Just because a school exist doesn't make it accredited or reputable, I've had the experience of bad schools even off line. So you must realize buyer be ware and do your research with your state, to make sure your dealing with an accredited school and program before you spend your money and time. And you must realize any and everyone you care for will have some sort of illness, disability or potential handicap, I've worked with dementia, alzheimer patients, combative patients, patients with wounds, broken bones, HIV, TB, severe athritis, patients who had strokes and couldn't use their bodies, couldn't walk lift or turn themselves and need you for that, those who have MS and parkinsons disease and also diabetes. And you must learn to care for these patients hands on and also learn about nutrition for any given patient, especially if you end up in the home setting caring for any of the aboved mentioned, because you end up responsible for meals and you wouldn't want to give a diabetic or anyone who has specific nutritional needs the wrong foods. And also safety as far as dealing with body fluids when changing diapers or helping someone to the toilet, you want to keep yourself safe from becoming infected while providing care. And for that reason you must learn about universal precations and personal protective equipment. And also learn how to take vitals, which is blood pressures, taking someones pulse and temperature and other valuable skills that you wont learn on line. Best of luck to you, programs in person are much shorter in 2009 but you can still find a program that is good to teach you the basics and as long as you continue to take continuing education.

this is continued from my above post,

you will be a well trained and hopefull efficient CNA and or HHA to hopefully patients who will appreciate your skill and care. Wouldn't you want a thoroughly trained CNA/HHA to be your caregiver versus someone who learned limited information over the computer. What if you ended up needing nursing care? You just never know if we will need help in the future! And my question to you is, who would you want to care for you? Someone who trained on line with out hands on training and without the benefit of supervision and training to make sure that got it right? Or someone who was thoroughly hands on trained and is well skilled because of it? The answer for me is obvious, I want the person who got the hands on training. Again best of luck to you.
