Becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant
First of all to become a CNA you’re gonna need a high school diploma or GED and completion of a 6-12 week certificate CNA training program. Which you can get from a community college or a medical facility. On CNA classes they’re gonna be focusing on your nursing skills, physiology (this is so important, since you’re going to spend a lot of time with the patients), anatomy and of course nutrition.
Every step of this program is more and more important for you to understand the patients, and therefore understand what they need. You can find many universities in your state that has CNA training classes, if you don’t think you have the time for actually going to classes.
There is a lot of options you can find on getting online classes of CNA training. You can try South University or University of Phoenix. If you don’t have the money to pay for the classes, you have an option on there too. In order to get classes for free you should contact your state board of nursing and of course researching the places you can get free CNA training.

But again the salary you’re gonna be getting is up to the place you work. Or which type of work place you choose to work.
