Most CNA, or nursing assistant training, requires a cash outlay. Like other scholastic, vocational courses, it takes classroom work and real-life experience to prepare for the Florida State CNA Exam. Therefore, courses will usually cost between five hundred and one thousand dollars. However, it is possible that some nursing homes or assisted-living facilities will offer training for free, if you sign a contract stipulating that you will stay on and work for them to pay for the training they offered. You will need to get certified before you can legally be employed as a CNA in Fort Myers, Florida, or anywhere else in the United States of America.

In general, you will need to pay for training; many aspiring CNA workers in this area have had difficulty finding free training. However, if you can demonstrate financial need, you may indeed qualify for some subsidies or student loans through the government. It's best to check the policies for the State of Florida before you begin the process of applying for student aid and signing up for courses. Here are some resources that will help you find out more about nursing assistant programs in Florida; these examples are not necessarily giving out free training in Fort Myers or elsewhere:

• Red Cross
904 Dixon Blvd., Cocoa, FL 32922
Phone: (407) 723-7142
• Beverly Health Care
5404 Babcock St., Palm Bay, FL 32905
Phone: (407) 722-0660

Once you pass the CNA exam, you will need to retake it every two years to maintain your certification. The registry that runs the entire Florida nursing assistant program will send out reminders that the certification is running out; this will happen in December, every two years. Once you've gotten your notice, you will have four months to pass the exam again before you lose your certification.
