    Nursing Homes

    • Nursing homes or assisted living facilities sometimes fill CNA positions from within their facilities if the need is urgent. To solve this problem, facilities may offer training to people pursuing a career in this field. In many cases, this student receives free training while earning a paycheck. The student is usually contracted to work a specific amount of time to pay off the training costs. You may ask officials at facilities whether they offer free or disconnected CNA training.
