Don't know any thing about your area. See if you have a vocational rehab center in your county. They will help in so many areas.

If your still interested you can email me at ethelstevenslove54@yahoo.com, because I don't have the information on me right now. It's in Brooklyn on 6th avenue.

john in New York, New York said: can someone please and please (I really need help) where I can find a free cna class because I don't have any money to pay to take the class. I have been looking for a job for about a year now and I can't find none. A free cna class in long island, queens or Manhattan. but I preffered queens. Thank you for helping me in advance may god bless you.

John:
If you prefer Queens, then go to the Workforce Career 1 Center on Jamaica ave, at 168-25 Jamaica ave, between 168th & 169th. They have many medical training programs. Apply for a grant and choose the field of your choice. You won't have to pay at all.

Do you need to have experience in the medical field in order for you to get a voucher for something in the medical field? Because when i went to the workforce 1 in the bronx they told me i wasnt qualified because i didnt prior experience. Is it the same thing there?

Hi:
Jadaw, different offices does different things. It's different in Brooklyn. You have to show them your resume to determine what you're interested in. I say go to another office, Queens, Mahattan, Brooklyn. In Brooklyn if you haven't been to the workforce office in the last 6 months you sign up to see a career counselor and then they'll schedule you an appointment for (2) weeks. Tell them you're interested in taking the CNA classes, or pick the medical field of your choice and apply for the grant. It takes 6 weeks. The CNA classes is (3) months training with workforce. They supply you with the uniform, books, etc. Go for it.

Look on the CNA forum here. Recently I wrote you and gave the information. Also you can go to the Workfoce Career 1 Center downtown Brooklyn and get into the CNA training program or tell them you're interested in the medical field and you can take the training of your choice. Take your resume with you when you go, they will give you an appointment to come back. CNA classes take less the time (3) months. Ask about the New Age School when you speak to a counselor.

Don't know anything about New Jersey. Check your local listings in New Jersey to see if there's any training for CNA. Try Lincloln Tech or Everest. Check websites on the computer for CNA training in New Jersey.

ms Sharon I am all for helping people, truly I am...But I would not give this young lady not one more bit of information. You are communicating with her via internet, could you not do any homework on you on. Watch out Ms Sharon, next she will want you to set her up a appointment and give her a ride. She gave you the name : OPPORTUNITY CENTER IN HOMESTEAD free of charge, take the time to do some work on your on, for Christ sake you have a computer and I'm sure you must have a telephone. Help comes to those who help themselves.

The perfect place to start would be workforce one. Even you u have to make one trip to get information and another for the actually appointment. Use a little common sense, some of your OWN common sense. ID, SS CARD, names and Birth dates of people in your home, income, High School transcript or GED, if none ask about GED classes when you get there. These are all documents you should have readily on hand and keep together in a safe place always! If you do not have any of these documents, start collecting them all ASAP and be sure to always have them. Also get a copy of any vaccines you will have, often times for work or school this verification is also needed. Be willing to use your resources and put in the work. It is not good to rely so much on others.

AFTER GRADUATING I WENT ON DOZENS OF INTERVIEWS, AND MOST OF THE TIME THE JOB REQUIRES SOMEONE WHO IS BILINGUAL OR HAVE EXPERIENCE PRIOR IN THE HEALTH CARE FIELD.I NEVER WAS HIRED AS A MEDICAL ASSISTANT.

BUT IT LOOKS LIKE I HAD TO WORK BACKWORDS.IM CURRENTLY IN DEPT PAYING MY STUDENT LOANS IN MEDICAL ASSISTING EVEN THO IM NOT EMPLOYED AS A MEDICAL ASSISTANT.

Can you not work as a PCA? Yes it does sounds like you are going backward. Can I recommend doing whatever you can to keep current on you MA. I understand you can take a quick free class and work as a cna, but again your moving backwards. When you do find employment, try to find a place where there is room for advancement. Don't let you MA go down the drain.

Hi Mary:
A PCA and a CNA is pretty much basically the same profession. It all depends on what some people want to take up or do. To be a Home Attendant is going backwards, because a PCA, Medical Assistant, and a CNA in most cases depending on where you got your training from know phlebotomy. I'm going for a license practical nurse. Also I read your comment about me giving the information for free training to become a CNA and they wanted phone numbers and everything. Enjoy your holidays!

Hi Matthew:
Just read your message tonight and here is the information for the free CNA information. Your best bet is to go to the Workforce Career #1 Center located in New York City in Manhattan. The address is 215 west 125th street 6th floor, phone number is two one two two eight zero- three seven two nine. Or visit their website www.nyc.gov/workforce1 or dial 311. Maybe 311 could give you information for the Rhode Island area on CNA. Tell them your interested in free CNA training.

Whatever you do,don't go to Hostos community college in the bronx, the teacher was often almost an hour late to class and would let us out early! Plus she said we would be taking off days for new years and that we didn't have a nursing home to do our clinicals afterward, just plain ghetto, I got my money back and never looked back.

Hi, Roma how long did it take you to get the voucher in workforce 1 for the CNA program. I went to workforce 1 in jamaica once before they wants me to go through all the BS just to get an ungurantee voucher. I was told the workforce1 in state island is easier to get. Do you goto workforce 1 first and apply at access career or goto access career first then goto workforce 1?
