My brother is interested in becoming a cna, but does not have the money for a class. There used to be some local Nursing Homes that would hire people interested in becoming a cna's and they would offer the class to thier employees. Is this still the case? If so who are they?

I'm not real sure how other states, but in Idaho it is a 3 month course that is offered to you as a high school senior in most high schools, or at a local college or university. I took it through the high school a year and a half ago. The class is around $150 to $200. My best advice is to look into classes through a college. I've never heard of a nursing home training for CNAs. They may train NAs, but a CNA takes more time and money. It also pays back. You will get a higher wage if you're a CNA rather than an NA. I currently work for a home heath agency and we also train NAs. It's a matter of personal preference. Personally I would take the class and get the higher pay wage. Any further questions, feel free to contact me at whitnerin@hotmail.com.

I've been searching for about six months trying to find a nursing home or facility that will pay for the cna training in exchange for me committing to work at their facility for a specified amount of time. I haven't been able to find one yet. However, what I did find is that if you go to Pikes Peak Workforce and register with them and meet their criteria they will pay for you to take the CNA classes and in most cases will pay for your blood pressure cuff, stethoscope, one set of scrubs and shoes (they may only give you money for the class). You have to jump through a couple of hoops but it's worth the hoop jumping. It's located on Pikes Peak Ave next to where the old Montgomery Wards used to be. It's a state run job search facility and you'll have to deal with a lot of people at the facility, if you go early in the morning you'll run into less people.

Sorry, I also meant to say that there are several places in Colorado Springs that hold classes if you can afford them without help. They range in prices just go to www.dora.state.co.us/nursing/education/CNAprogramsCounty.pdf and scroll down to El Paso county and it will list most of the places with phone #s, that are certified to hold CNA classes in our county. Good luck!

Hello! They nbo longer have free CNA training here. Your brother can apply for assistance I believe if he is over 50 years of age. Oyherwise I know of a great cna training course. The best in Colorado Springs in my openion. Very clean and friendly. I received my training at another place for three days. It was bad! I was referred to NTSOC and was very satisified. I believe they still have the same price for the class, which is around $650.00. They have a payment plan which splits it up into two. Talk to Aliese or Tammy @ Therapy Services of Colorado in Colorado Springs. I would have put the phone number but this page doesn't allow that..

Good Luck!

Hello,

No, there isn't any CNA training in nursing homes in Colorado Springs or the Denver area. You would need to take the class through a local training center. I ended up going to NTSOC in Colorado Springs. It was the best! Very clean and they make sure you know everything before your test. I highly recommend them.
Good luck!

My son just completed his CNA training through Job Corps. For anyone under the age of 24 that is considered low income, the training is in residence and doesn't cost a dime. They actually give you about $1200 when you finish the course.

Now the bad part. My son has been facing rejection everywhere he applies for work. Every job he sees in Colorado Springs wants 1 year of experience. It is pretty tough to get the experience when you can't find an entry level job.

The problem with Home Healthcare is that a lot of places don't see this as "experience" pertaining to a CNA. I too am having a hard time fining a job here in Colorado Springs. It's amazing how they can mislead you into thinking that there is such a demand for CNA's but then refuse to hire you based on lack of experience. I'm opting for some volunteer work to beef up my resume. I know that Penrose hospital offers volunteer work and hoping this will get my foot in the door. Keeping my fingers crossed, it's going to be a tough Christmas this year.

Our FRONT RANGE NURSE AIDE TRAINING PROGRAM in Colorado Springs provides an excellent 4-week day course plus a 5-week night course, both of which occur year round. Both courses are $565 if paid in advance but a two-part payment option is also available. Our tuition includes textbook and all supplies but you still need a criminal background check plus a TB skin test. We have trained over 950 Colorado nurse aides and have been in business since 2006. We also have a very high pass rate for the State Boards because our program's final exams are slightly harder then the State Boards. Our program is fully approved by the Colorado Board of Nursing and the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment and we train many students heading into the college & university RN Nursing programs. We also train military spouces through arrangement with the Pikes Peak Workforce Center. Our website at NURSENANCY.ORG is loaded with additional info and we are located at 7870 N. Academy Blvd. just across the street from the Chapel Hills Mall (by the Burger King and Chipotle restraunts).

Yep, ain't that the truth. When I look at the ads for CNA's they want experienced ones.

I also was going to go to school to become a pharm tech. I did some checking and it seems that they also want experiences ones. They said that with all the people who are now in the field they can be choosy on who they hire now. I'm thinking that's the same idea behind the CNA hiring. Too many graduates have flooded the field and they can be choosy now. Read the ad from the Nurse Nancy guy. They've been in business since 2006 and have graduated over 950 students(probably more now since that was written 2 months ago and they have 2 programs a month) With all those people in the field it makes you wonder where the CNA jobs they keep talking about when you go to the schools really are now. It's all about money. They don't help you find jobs when you graduate. What good is the training if you can't get a job?

Even the traveling nurses require experience.

People I knew that went to the Pharm tech school are now working at WalMart as a regular employee and another as a teachers aide. A lot of help their diplomas did them.

I wold be careful of front range nursing as they will charge for testing if you fail their final. they should be helping students and concerned that their training is helpful and that their students should pass. after paying a fee of over 500. to take the course I think that the instructors should help those who are unable to pass and figure out how to help them. charging fees during these times on top of class fees and to have the student only bring cash to retake a test is wrong.
