CNA Program

Before choosing a CNA school, we strongly suggest you look at the pass rate status of each school and we believe you will be pleased where First Step is ranked.....We feel that our pass rate speaks for itself......

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.  

Tuition

We require a $100.00 non refundable sign up fee to reserve  your seat, this is subtracted from the total amount due.  The balance is due by the end of the course.    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. The student is responsible for the state test fee. The cost of the state testing fee is  $118.50. Our gold package includes all of the silver package plus the state test, 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.
