When it comes to the medical and health field, it may seem like it is difficult & you might not know where to begin, but starting as a CNA will surely get your foot in the door. I believe that Vocational Nursing Institute is the best place to come to. It's fun, affordable and the teacher(s) are great. They work with you until the very end and would love to see you succeed. I strongly recommend coming here to get the best training!

Vocational Nursing Institute is a very educational, fun, and exciting learning experience. The class sizes give the students an opportunity to ask questions and revisit topics that were misunderstood. Hands on learning experiences make students accurately learn how to handle different tasks on the mannequin before going into elderly homes. The school also provides videos, powerpoints, and verbal interactions to let students understand precisely how to do different tasks/roles of CNA.
