Rose in Troy, New York said: I am curious to know if you can get a CNA license in New York State if you have a misdemeaner charge against you. I heard that if you have this type of charge you still can get hired. It was 3 years ago and I have long ago paid my dues. please let me know. I am very interested in pursuing this career now that I have grown up. I worked with the disabled for over 2 years in a house setting for adults and I loved it. Please let me know about NYS laws

first you would have to find a place thats is willing to hire you and once your finger prints come back flagged you will get a letter from the deparment of health then you have to get all the documents off the list they send to you in the mail from the deparment of health than you mail it back to them your info goes to the legal review unit then you will have to wait for there answer if you can work or not but their answer is not base on the crime commited its based on the info you send in so the better or get a head start and call the and ask them to mail what is needed call 411 deparment of health in albany ny legal review unit just try and see good luck

I tryed work force the place was very crowded, lot of young kids. They have a lot of requirements, and I did not feel like going back many times as if I was asking for welfare. Looked at four schools I found on google, Access Career in Brooklyn (the staff seemed lost), Allen School (tryed to talk me into an expensive Medical Assistant course), Manhattan Insitute (Nice school, let me sit on the class before I enrolled), Medical Training Center in Queens (Nice school, but long trip for me)

I went with the Manhattan Institute. I had two teachers, one for the class and another one for practice in the nursing home. The classroom teacher was great, she always stayed after class for questions, also gave us her cell number and had no problem with me calling her. Class was not free, but you can pay each week, and use a credit card. All the students in my class were nice, no ghetto, trash, or rowdy young kids. I became friends with a bunch of students and we stayed after class until the night class began practing nursing skill on each other.

I found a job a week later from Tower Agency, so the money I would of saved by getting the class for free, I made back by not having to wait for training.

My advice is to find a school near your house and pay for it. The class is not that much money, and you will save time.

My girl friend had the problem. I went with her when I was looking around for schools. They all agreed that she should take English training first. When I researched it I found out the class is only given in English. You also only have three times to pass the Federal exam, to become licensed.

Take the CNA course. It only takes a few weeks and there are jobs, which pay decent. You can check out the school I went to www.ManhattanInstitute.com I really liked it, but there are many others.

Hi,
I totally agree on the work force 1.. too many trips too many things they ask for. I went to access career as well the staff there is totally clueless. I kept telling her that i cant make it for there immediately start day school which is like following monday because i didn't have the money yet. She kept telling me so you coming this monday right? I goes no! i can't i have to take care of other business first. when is your next class starts. I got a price from mahattan insitute over 1,000. I ended up going to medical training center in Flushing. Classes are done now this coming week is the internship. Then I am going back to work as a HHA first until next month i take my state exam for the certification meanwhile take my EKG and phebolame(spelling) classes. after my state exam i will be working as CNA. i know i will pass the state exam. The tutions at medical training center is the cheapest. 100 bucks less but still make it to 819. minus uniforms.

Hello Nancy,
We are in Hempstead, NY which is in Long Island. We are affiliated with several agencies that will pay for your CNA training at no cost to you, but you must apply to these agencies yourself and meet their eligibility requirements. Most of the agencies that will pay for your training will ask you to show residency in the state that you are applying in. There are several agencies that will pay for your education provided you meet their requirements. If you do decide to attend our school we do have classes for the CNA curriculum that meet every Saturday and Sunday for 8 weekends.Let me know if you need any other info. Good Luck

Do you want me to take the test for you? for god shake! STUDY and STUDY and practice your skills like everyone else does it! Make sure you retain what you study! There is no short cut for it. For some people they just need to look the book once and they have a photograph memory of it. I wish I have that ability but I don't. So, I pick up my paper work and study short period everyday until the test date comes. Do the written part exam that you find on the web. They are all pretty much the same things. They have the answer in the back.

Hi,
I am looking for a CNA+PCT class for free.
I already did my research found a school and they told me to go to workforce one for a voucher (since the class is abt $3500). I am planning to go to the one in brooklyn.
I know the phone number address and what to bring to the orientation session at workforce one.
Since I work it is hard for me to miss days to go their.
I was just wondering if anyone could tell me about how long it takes from the time I enter the building for orientation until i leave?
And how many times do we usually have to come back before getting the voucher?
(that way i can know how to fix my schedule around it)

Thanks!!!

Hi guys, does anyone know how someone who has a CNA license, working in a hospital can get free EKG/Phlebotomy in ny (Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, Brooklyn..)

Rephrased: I have the CNA license but would like to be more of a PCT with the EKG and Phleb. But i heard it's expensive and have also called some places. So i was wondering if there are free classes. Is it worth paying the money? or would a CNA be able to get training in those areas??

thanks

Hi Mimine
Yes you can work as a PCT. Once you become certified you get a certificate for all (3), EKG, Phlebotomy, and certification training as a nurses assistant or technician. Ethel

Hi Mimine
Yes you can work anywhere once you become certified. Hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, hospices etc. The medical staffing agencies always want you to have at least 1 year working experience before you can work with their agencies.

Hi Mimi:
If you go to workforce in Brooklyn, you can call for an appointment. Try to get an appointment for after 5:00 p.m. if you work from 9 to 5, okay. Because on certain days of the week they close at 8:00 p.m. Take your resume with you.

I am in a situation where i have a cna certification but its lapsed. I was told i didnt have to retrain to make my cert. unlapsed that i just had to take the exam again...i was shocked cause i have not worked as a cna in 7 yrs so i felt i needed some kind of training again. Well i took the test over ..i past the written but i stopped the clinical. I was told i can retake the clinical part of the test anytime. I was told there is no refreshing course for people that are in my situation. I basically have to retrain all over. I now live in copiague ny. but i had trained and got my cna certificate in upstate utica.n.y. I am also looking for free training so i can get my certificate all good again i really enjoyed working as a cna and really want to do it again.

Just some quick advice. I read through most of the posts and found some to be very useful. My question is that I am interested in applying for a grant for medical assistant/cna training. The thing is that I have no experience in the medical field at all. Is there a chance that I can still get the grant or they only give it to people with prior experience. Kindly advise. I need people who went to the Brooklyn office to share their experience. Thank You.

I tried to get a grant for the nurse training course but they turned me down because i had no experience also. They will not give you the grant unless you have at least 6 months of experience in that type of field.

Hi Aj:
John Moore is right, Workforce want you to have 6 months medical experience to receive a grant from them. So try some of the adult educational centers. Here's a few, Manhattan Adult Learning 212 West 120th Street New York City two one two six six six one nine one nine,or one nine two zero. Then there's the Adult Education Center at the old girls high on Nostrand Avenue (2) blocks from Fulton Street, in Brooklyn. You can find it on the internet or take the C train and get off at Nostrand Avenue and come out onto the streets and you will see the school. Also try the Adult Educational Center in the State Office Building in Harlem right off 125th Street. It is supposedly a two month course. Try the internet.
