Free CNA Training in Arkansas

Free CNA classes in Arkansas can be obtained through nursing facilities, home health centers and through the Workforce Investment Act to those who qualify.

The purpose of the Arkansas Workforce Investment Act is based on the belief that higher education should not be a privilege reserved only for those who can afford to purchase it and that educational opportunities should not be limited by the financial resources of the student and his/her family.

To find out if you are eligible for any of the free CNA certification programs in Arkansas, you will need to contact the training provider.  Some of the free nurse aide training may require applicants to provide a copy of the previous year’s tax returns.  This may be requested by the Financial Aid Office.

Becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant in Arkansas, is a great way to enter the lucrative healthcare field without having to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on medical school. The types of duties you can perform as a CNA will vary depending on where you choose to work.
