Free CNA Classes in Illinois

Commonly CNAs do not receive their training directly from Illinois nursing homes. Rather, these health care facilities partner with community colleges and vocational schools with approved programs. You can inquire from Modern Care Convalescent, Monmouth Nursing Home, Cahokia Nursing and Rehab Center, St. Clara’s Manor, and Camelot Terrace if they provide “free” training for their CNAs.

For those who have just graduated high school, they can receive financial assistance from Joliet Job Corps. The agency gives free CNA training to qualified applicants, along with free board and lodging and regular meals. They also help graduates land a job and even move to another state.

Scholarships such as the CNA scholarship of the City Colleges of Chicago are also available for CNA students. In the said scholarship, you can receive $1,000 assistance, which can be used to cover tuition fees of any CNA program approved by the state.
