There are plenty of opportunities in the state of Connecticut for aspiring certified nursing assistants (CNAs). A number of healthcare institutions in the state even offer free training for CNAs, in exchange for a commitment to work for them. CNA programs at technical schools often cost around $1,000 to enroll, so if you are short on cash for school, this could be a great option for you. Beyond covering your training costs, another perk of this arrangement is that you are guaranteed employment at the end of the program.

All CNA programs are under the supervision of the Connecticut Department of Public Health, Bureau of Healthcare Systems, and the Division of Health Systems Regulation. There is a distinct difference between CNA programs in Connecticut and programs in the rest of the country. While federal law mandates at least 75 hours of training for CNAs, the state of Connecticut demands at least 100 hours to ensure quality training. The training includes courses, classroom assignments, and hands-on clinical exposure.
