Although there are more than 9,000 CNAs in Hawaii there are not many training programs. You can receive certified nursing assistant training in a handful of community colleges and medical (such as nursing) care facilities in the state. You will need to attend a program that has been approved by the Department of Health in order to be eligible to sit for a certification exam. It is not as easy to find free cna training but not impossible. To get free training read the options available below:
If you are living in Hawaii and are receiving welfare benefits or are currently unemployed, you might be eligible for assistance covering your tuition. It is often possible to receive help to train for a new career if you are struggling to earn an income or at any rate a good income. You should contact employment and welfare agencies for potential assistance to receive free cna training.
You can sometimes receive employer-sponsored cna training if you are completing a training program through a healthcare facility. The employer will pay you to train to become a qualified nursing assistant in exchange for free training. You will then be required to work for the employer for awhile as a certified nursing assistant.
There is something else to consider if you are currently working in a healthcare facility but not as a healthcare provider. You should contact your current employer if you are interested in working for them as a certified nursing assistant. If they know that you want to train to become a certified nursing assistant, it is possible that your employer will pay for your tuition to train. This is especially true if they know you are a hard-working and compassionate individual.
You should talk to administrators at any program of Interest for CNA training in Hawaii. You might very well learn about grants or potential scholarships to cover the cost of your tuition.
