So you're going to VCU, University of Richmond or another school for higher education this Fall? Paying for education has never been harder. Most students will graduate with great debts if their parents can't help them out. What's worse, student loans may not cover all your expenses while you're in school.
Yes, you could have a job on the weekends working retail or in the restaurant industry. That type of labor can be quite intense, especially if you have a full load of classes. They also don't add much to your resume and they are known for not paying particularly well.
During this summer, you could take our 5 week course and become a CNA. By the time you go back to school you can get paid anywhere between $8.00-$12.00 depending on which facility you work in. This can be much higher than minimum wage and it is a job that you can work nights, if you go to school during the day, or day if you want to go school at night. You're not giving up weekends like you'd have to do if you work retail or restaurants. Most importantly, it is a job that adds to your resume and will look good to your future employers, no matter what industry you decide to work in.
Is this the first time a college student decides to do our program to support themselves through college? Not at all, in fact, there's plenty of VCU students headed to medical careers that KNOW that this is the best place for them to start. Again, you don't have to be a medical student to take advantage of this program - you just have to be hard working, interested in making more money and willing to do our five week course.
Why Virginia School for Nurse Aides? Simple. We offer payment plans, we are an accelerated course and we are just one of the best. Just watch all of the videos our students have made on our Facebook page as testimonials. Other schools take longer, are more expensive and don't have as high of a success rate as our school.
