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.
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 sign up fee to reserve your seat, and we also require a $50.00 non refundable deposit on the first day of class. The balance is due by the end of the course. With the Bronze package, The cost of the state test 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.
