What we believe

God placed a desire in my heart to train nurse aid students to be productive, respectful, knowledgeable,compassionate and valuable CNAs.   Our class sizes are small (max 12) so that each student can receive personalized training. On the first day of class, the student is given a textbook and workbook that is theirs to keep. We also include a highlighter, 2 pocket folder for handouts and a pocket size spiral notebook 

 We teach students about resident rights, culture change and person centered care.  At First Step Healthcare Training we also believe that the resident is more than just a diagnosis, they are a person.  


The cost of the state testing fee is now  $118.50, one price for either CNA only  or CNA/HHA. We have 2 different tuition packages to choose from. Our silver package is $499.00 this includes use of all necessary equipment needed to become a CNA, workbook, text book, background check, student ins for clinicals.   Our gold package includes either CNA or CNA/HHA state test the cost of this package is $617.50, if you only need your CNA now, you can always come back at no charge to get your HHA training at a later date...as long as it's within the same year as your CNA class. No extra charge from the state and no state exam for HHA. 

We require a $50.00 non refundable sign up fee to reserve your seat, and we also require a $50.00 non refundable deposit on the first day of class this is subtracted from the total amount due.  The balance is due by the end of the course.   For more information about test fees and scheduling, please contact Tulsa Tech at (918) 828-2037.  Finally, First Step does not guarantee job placement; however, we will try and  assist you in job placement..
