Free CNA Training in Wisconsin

If you are looking for an entry-level healthcare opportunity where you can provide basic care services for patients, you might be considering a job as a CNA.  You can become a CNA by completing a state approved training program and passing the CNA certification test.  There are even ways to find free cna training. We have compiled a list of options below:

Some high schools in Wisconsin are recognizing the importance of offering training for students in high school who might not be ready to continue on to college upon graduation. Vocational high schools are offering a range of career training opportunities before students graduate.  Training as a certified nursing assistant is one of the available choices in some high schools in Wisconsin.  This offers high schools students the opportunity for free training.

Many healthcare providers are in need of quality and compassionate certified nursing assistants.  You can contact local long-term care and continuing care communities to inquire about any available training courses.  The same is true of many rehabilitation centers and even some hospitals.  Many of these healthcare facilities will provide you for training for free if you agree to join their workforce as a CNA upon completion of your training.

If you served in the military or were a member of the reserves, contact your benefits administrator to determine if you can access tuition assistance for training as a certified nursing assistant.  You might be able to receive the financial help necessary to cover the cost of training at a state certified nursing assistant program in Wisconsin.  If all of your tuition and fees are covered, your cna training will be free.

It is sometimes possible to find free CNA training classes online.  If you find a program that is approved for your state, you can use these classes as the starting point for your nursing assistant career.  However, you will need to complete some clinical instruction hours offline.  Depending on the structure of the online program, you might need to pay a fee for this portion of your training.

By taking your time to look into multiple nursing assistant training options, you are likely to find free CNA training opportunities.

Wisconsin Job Corps
There are two Job corps centers in Wisconsin. They are located in Blackwell and Milwaukee. Both offer free of cost nursing assistant training to qualifying students. One advantage of working at the Job corps is that you get a living allowance as well as accommodation. If you’re running out of other options in getting a worthwhile career, you might want to give the Job Corps a go. It was set up to aid workers who have not been able to complete their GED and help them get vocational training to become worthwhile members of the workforce.

Workforce Advantage
If you’ve been unemployed for a while and are too old for the Job Corps, you might want to visit your local Workforce advantage office in Wisconsin to see if you qualify for free retraining. The United States Govt hates it when people are unemployed and has set in place many programs that make vocational training easily accessible and in some cases(if you qualify) even free!.

    Hi my name is Santaleen Reed and i wanted to know if you can send me some information about CNA training, It is something that i really wanted to do for a long time. I don’t have the money to pay for training, but i am willing to work at a place after or during the training. I have my medical assistance degree. At the time when i had finish school i already had a good paying job and when i lost the job a couple of years later, no one would hire me in my field cause you needed 6 months to a year experience. Right now i do home care part time and also helping take care of my mother, so if you could please give me a call or an e-mail asap I would really appreciate it and thanks a lot. My cell number is (hidden) and my home is (hidden) again thanks for taking the time out to read my email.

    Hi my name is Celestine Fulsom, I was wondering if you could send me some info on CNA training. Years ago I took the course and pass it, but did not presue or took advantage of this, because I was offered a supervisor position in Environmental service. Now that I’m laid off from this position I would like to go back in this field. My certificate has expired and I need to take this course all over again. I love working and helping others its always been my dream to work in the nursing field.

    Hi, my name is Cheryl, and I am very interested in becoming a CNA. However, due to financial circumstances, I am unable to afford to take these classes. I am a passionate, dedication individual with a genuine sincerity to help others. In addition, I have excellent communication skills to relate with different personalities day in and day out to accomplish tedious tasks. Also, I am willing to further my education to better myself and the facility in-which I work for. Thank you in advance for your time. Please contact via e-mail if you are interested.

    Sincerely,

    Cheryl

    Hi, My name is Brianna, and I am very interested in becoming a CNA. I don’t want to make it a career want a career in the science field. But I’m still in High school =/ Are there places that I can take CNA training ? Maybe even free?

    • Mary June 18, 2014 at 10:29 pm #

      Hi Brianna! I’m in a very similar situation to you, I am now a certified nursing assistant who is not pursuing it as a lifetime career but as a transition to another career in the health care field. There are definitely places for highschoolers to pursue cna training, as I did the summer between my junior and senior year in highschool. I would say try looking online for local programs. Also, I did get the training for free through a special program in my school district. Try talking to your school counselors and see if they have any special oppurtunities like that or at the very least they can help you find a local training program for becoming a cna. Good luck in your endeavors!!
