How to Save Money When Becoming a CNA
With the median annual Certified Nursing Assistant salary at $30,313 (salary.com, 2015), becoming a CNA can open new opportunities and financial freedom. For students who don’t have the money in their pockets yet, we’ve put together a list of ways to save money when becoming a CNA.
1. Seek out jobs that will cover your CNA school and certification.
When looking for places you want to work, call your top choices and see if they cover new employee’s CNA certification. Since CNA’s are in high demand, some employers will agree to pay for your certification in return for a commitment to work with them for a set amount of time.
2. Choose a fast track CNA course.
Not only is a fast track option way faster (think one week vs. several months), but it is also less expensive than traditional programs, which cost $800 and up. Our fast track CNA course prepares you to pass the state exam just one week, so you are on your way to earning a paycheck much faster.
3. Pay when you can with special financing offers from Gabriel Health Institute.
With four and eight week options, you can start school with just $95 down. You don’t have to start making payments on the balance until the week after your graduate Gabriel Health Institute. Set yourself up with a new career before paying off your education.
