I have been an LPN for 12 years,I have worked in Home Health, Hospice, LTC, Dr. Office, as a CNA (10 years) I have worked in LTC, Hospital and Dr Office (they were training me to be a Medical Assistant) I also worked as a Medical Coding and Billing Specialist (4 years) for an anesthesiology office and a Dr. Office.
Dreams don't come true until you take that FIRST STEP.
Our course for CNA is 10 days for a total of 78 hours and our CNA/HHA training course is 12 days for a total of 94 hours. 38 hours classroom lecture/book/workbook, 24 hours skills learning, 16 hours of HHA training, 16 hours of clinical site hands on experience with residents at a Long Term Care Facility (LTC). The student will learn:
Patient Safety, infection control, ADL assistance, Vitals, Dementia care, and so much more!!!!!!!
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. We teach you 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.
We have 3 different tuition packages to choose from. Our Bronze 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 next tuition package is our Silver package: $589.00 this includes everything in the Bronze package plus the state CNA test of $90.00 (student is responsible for the $25.00 fee for HHA).
Gold package $614.00: includes everything in the Silver package and also includes state test for CNA/HHA ($115.00).
We require a $50.00 non refundable deposit to reserve your seat, this is applied to your $100.00 deposit that is due on the first day of class. First Step works directly with a testing provider to assist candidates with exam scheduling. With the Bronze package A $30 deposit must be paid to the test site to reserve a testing appointment. The balance of the fees are due to the test site on the day of testing. If you choose the Silver or Gold package, First Step will pay this fee for you. 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..
