I took my cna class at Hillcrest nursing home in corbin. The class is 2 weeks long and you get paid while in the class. After you pass 2 days of clinicals than you get to work out on the floor and they send you to take the state test. After you pass it, which is really easy you are a state registered nurses aid. By the way the pay is $8.40 an hour and once you get certified than you go up to $9.40. it is a really good place to work. you can go put in applications at any time. they usually have a class about every 2 months.hope this helps!

You can also apply at Laurel Heights In london. They put you through the class and Pay u as u go along and then u hit the floor working and there u have a good paying job. Laurel Height is the best paying Long term health care Facility. It pays better than manchester or corbin homes.

i appreciate the advice..i was actually hoping i could get a job working in a doc's office taking vitals and so on..i believe every word you say..i have friends and family who do that, and it is definitely break breaking hard work, and my hats off to you and the many others who do the job..i know you never get the credit you deserve...like i said, i was hoping to take those skills to a doctors office where it's not as physically demanding...thank you for your opinion, it's appreciated..

Most Doctor's offices won't hire just CNA's they are looking for CNA's with training in phlebotomy as well, you could look into on of the local hospitals around here, I'm pretty sure corbin hospital does the phlebotomy training.

I'm not positive on it but I think it may be a three week session, I have not taken it yet, I am going to school to be an RN and I have to take a phlebotomy course on my own, because I was informed by my instructors and I quote " that RN's do not draw blood." That was news to me every time I have had blood drawn at the hospital a nurse did it, anyway I am going to find somewhere this summer to do it cause I feel like that is something I need to know how to do.... But like I was saying before I got side tracked I heard that corbin offered the phlebotomy course you could call them to find out the details..I hope this helps. Good luck.

You could also try to find a CMA ( certified medical assisting) class at a local college or online. This would allow you to work in a physician's office. CNA's are rarely hired in a physicians' office. Hospitals, nursing homes, or private care are your main choices for employment.

I can't believe that a CNA gets paid less than $10 an hour. They do all the dirty work! The only good thing that I can see is that it doesn't take long to get certified.

I worked at Corbin Nursing Home, and when I applied I took the class at Hillcrest. It is a 2 week class then your put out to work. Like you have been told it is the hardest back breaking work you can do. Ok as far as doing the med pass which is CMA and the phlebotomy they want you to work there for a duration of 2 years is what they told me. It may have changed cause its been 5 years since I worked there but you can try. To me it was as if they didnt want you to better yourself.

It's a shame they aren't paid at least $30-$40 an hour for the hard work they do.

That's why you should become an RN instead of a CNA. You are basically wasting your time if you go the CNA route.
