Free CNA Training in MO – Missouri

The Department of Health and Senior Services is the department that does approve nursing assistant training programs in the state of Missouri.  Training programs are generally very affordable.  However, the cost for a training course might still be more than you can afford.  Fortunately, you can find free cna training options if you take the time to look for them.  You can start an entry-level healthcare career with a fair pay without needing to invest large sums of money for your education. we have put together a list of nursing homes that can help you get free cna training.

Some high schools offer nursing assistant programs as one of the courses of study for students who are completing a career preparation track in high school rather than taking college prep.  This is something to consider if you are still in high school and such a program is offered.  Nursing assistant training programs are often offered at vocational schools for adults as well.  Individuals who are low income or unemployed sometimes qualify for special grants and financial assistance to receive training.

You should also contact nursing care facilities in your area if you are planning to train to become a certified nursing assistant.  These facilities often offer training programs on-site for individuals who wish to become CNAs.  They will provide you with training at no cost to you if you agree to work for the employer for a specified amount of time (often up to one year).  This is a good way to receive your free cna training and to obtain your first job as a certified nursing assistant.

Scholarships might also be available to you if you are training to become a certified nursing assistant.  If you receive a large enough scholarship or several different scholarships, you might be able to cover the entire cost of training.  When inquiring about a nursing assistant training program, ask the program director if there are any scholarships for which you can apply or if they know of any organizations you can contact that might offer scholarships for prospective CNAs or entry-level healthcare workers.

With some time and effort, you can find free CNA training options in the state of Missouri.  You can even contact the State board of Nursing to determine if they know of any training programs that are free or any programs that would provide you with scholarships or grants to attend nursing assistant certification classes.
