Free CNA Training in LA – Louisiana

If you are looking to train to become a certified nursing assistant, you will need to find a training program that has been approved by the state.  Training programs are often offered at community colleges, nursing care facilities and even some nursing schools.  There is a tuition associated with most courses, though some free cna training opportunities are available.  We have put together a list of free and low cost training options below:

Apply for one of the CNA/HHA Scholarships that are available throughout the US.  These scholarship opportunities are generally sponsored by local organizations and charities.  The purpose of the scholarships is to provide an opportunity for individuals who could otherwise not afford training to begin a new career as a CNA.

You might be able to receive assistance to pay for nursing assistant training if you are currently unemployed or receiving public assistance benefits.  Contact the office from which you receive benefits to determine if you would qualify to apply for some funds to help cover the cost of training to become a certified nursing assistant.

Apply for employment with a nursing care facility and other healthcare providers.  Many of these facilities will hire you for employment as a certified nursing assistant before you receive your certification so that they can provide you with training at their facility.  Employer-sponsored nursing assistant training will require you to work for the employer for an agreed upon amount of time after becoming certified.

You can receive reimbursement for tuition expenses you already paid for an approved nursing assistant training course if you are hired by a Medicare or Medicaid facility within one year of having received that certification.  You should keep receipts for any tuition and expenses that you pay out of pocket to become a certified nursing assistant.

If you are attending a college or university to take an accredited nursing assistant training program, do not forget to apply for financial aid in the form of scholarships and grants.  You can receive free training if you are able to receive enough of a financial aid package to pay for your tuition and other expenses you will incur.
