Free CNA classes are not a myth; they exist in many if not most areas of the country, and Cincinnati is no exception.  Classes are available through various health care providers but you will have to contact individual organizations and care facilities to determine how they finance the training; "free classes” are achieved by a variety of approaches.  The following links and resources will direct your search and allow you to choose the most suitable arrangement for your program.

Scholarships and various forms of financial aid are available, and community agencies such as Human Services can assist your search.  You need to understand the terms on which the assistance is offered though; some CNA employers train onsite and will pay for training or reimburse you upon course completion, but many will require you to work with them for a certain length of time, or to repay the tuition from your earnings.  Others will reimburse you upon successful completion of the course or pay a certain percentage of your costs.

One local resource you will find helpful is the Ohio Nurse Aide Registry (OH Dept. Of Health, 246 N. High St., Columbus, OH 43215-2412  Verif:  OH Residents only: 800-582-5908)

The website www.nursegroups.com/CNA_Programs/Ohio is a rich source of CNA-related information.  Along with extensive state-by-state lists of training providers you can query, you will find links for practice tests, video tutorials, study tips and assorted CNA publications.  You will also find useful information on some of the job search engines on-line (e.g. www.job-search-engine.com/keyword/cna-tuition-reimbursement/), including facilities in various states where training is provided as part of their hiring package.

You must be 18 years of age, have a clean criminal and health history, and possess a high school diploma or equivalent to enroll in a CNA program in Ohio.  Students must complete 75 hours of coursework, i.e. 16 hours prior to patient contact and 59 hours combined coursework and supervised clinical work.  An STNA Ohio License is granted upon successful completion of the state-approved competency examination.  Read more at Suite101: CNA Ohio Certification: Nurse Aide Ohio Training Programs for an STNA Ohio License | Suite101.com www.suite101.com/content/cna-ohio-certification-a202370#ixzz
It is anticipated that the demand for CNAs will continue to grow, perhaps by as much as 18 percent over the next ten years, making this a popular career path in terms of job security in an
