Hi, Martin,

This is totally the best time to get into the CNA field. There is such a high demand for CNAs and training is everywhere. You could:

1. Go to the Red Cross web site: http://www.redcross.org/. Type in 'CNA Training' plus your city or state name. You will see a list of the Red Cross chapters in your area that are offering training. Not all cities provide training but if you are one of the lucky ones and you are able to find a class in your area, do it!

2. Community College: A lot of CNAs get their training through a community college. This is a good option, though a bit more expensive than the Red Cross. You'll get excellent training plus you will be ready for the state exam. The exams and requirements are different in every state but you can't go wrong with a community college. You will also get good placement for your practice hours through a community college.

3. On the job training: Some nursing homes provide training but that isn't available in my state. It might be in yours.

If you need to find the CNA requirements for your state, go to: http://www.inhomecna.com/find-your-states-requirements/ .

Good luck! This is a good field - for the right person - and many people use a CNA job as a way to check out if this is the right job for them before taking the leap into full-blown nursing school.
