You have to go to community college or private college to become a CNA. There may be waiting lists for programs and you may have to attend full time. It's better to go to community college because it's much cheaper but that's where the waiting lists may be. At the community college in my city the CNA program is the first year of the RN program. It will cost thousands of dollars.
You might think about being a phlebotomist. Some hospitals will hire people with no experience and train them. There are programs to become phlebotomy techs. My son has worked as a phlebotomist while going to school to be a medical lab tech. He has made about $11 an hour.
You should be able to get a Pell Grant to cover your tuition and have money left over if you go to a state community college.
