See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I live in Syracuse, NY and have been wanting to go back to school for my CNA for several years. I have heard that some nursing homes or hospitals have Free CNA training programs, so I searched on the internet and called every single place I could find. Even called places in the state capital (my hometown) Albany NY. Every one keeps telling me BOCES offers classes, but it is more than I can afford and I do not qualify for financial aid. Eventually I could afford the class at the local BOCES, but that is nearly $2K! Does anyone know of any programs online or anyone who lives in the State of NY that could point me in the right direction? Tried posting in another group, but no luck. At the very least, are there affordable programs?
I have worked with people that have disabilities, done some HHA training (class was cancelled before I completed it though since the teacher quit) , worked with children for several years, and did PCA work uncertified for a couple of years.
