Certified Nursing Assistant Programs in Bay Area

Hi Parents,

I have another health industry related question.  After completing her undergraduate degree, my daughter would like to enter a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) program.  She looked into this and found that Contra Costa College has a good program, but they only enroll 15 students per semester.  Are there other good programs in the Bay Area that she should look into as a back up plan?

Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.

Take a look at the College of Marin, Los Medanos, Evergreen, DeAnza and Merritt colleges.  Is Contra Costa College accredited?  I was told by a student last week they were having issues with their accreditation.  (You will need to verify.)  These programs are very competitive to get into and have long waiting lists.  If she would like to get started right away take a look at Unitek.
