Do I need a GED or high school diploma? No, but it is preferred as many employers require it as part of the hiring process. You do need to read at a certain level and do very basic math. You will complete a simple pre-test to assure you are at the proper level. If you need assistance, we have classes to help you.
How much does the program cost? The STNA program fee is $800. Scholarships are available based on household income and family size. A minimum out of pocket fee of $300 is required for all students. Some students may be eligible for funding through community partners or the City of Cincinnati. In this case, the out of pocket fee will be reimbursed upon completion of the program.
Do I need a uniform? Yes – the class uniform is scrubs.
Do you guarantee me a job after graduation? We guarantee you an interview with employers on site at the end of training. We begin the process of assisting you into employment right away and continue even after graduation. Our workforce training team will provide guidance and coaching support to help you get and keep a job.
Do you provide child care or transportation? No. It is your responsibility to arrange for childcare (including a back-up plan) and transportation to insure you do not miss class. You may qualify for assistance with transportation.
