Graduates of certified nursing assistant (CNA) training programs most likely put forth a whole lot of effort in a diligent manner to complete their coursework and practice their skills to perfection. The next logical step is passing the CNA state exam. Achieving a passing score on the CNA state exam is like icing on a cake because it is a rewarding culmination of the student’s perseverance and efforts throughout the previous weeks or months.

Nevertheless, there are a number of ways students can mess up on their efforts to take the CNA state test before they ever even get the opportunity to set foot in the the Pearson Vue testing center. In other words, some students make one or more silly mistakes that result in forfeiture of their testing appointments in addition to loss of the exam monies they paid.

The following is a list of actions that could potentially cause students to not be admitted into the Pearson Vue testing center and lead to forfeiture of CNA state exam fees.

  1. Test takers will need to arrive at the Pearson Vue testing center approximately 30 minutes prior to their scheduled test appointment times. A failure to arrive at the testing center on time will result in forfeiture of the CNA state exam appointment as well as any testing fees that had been previously paid.
  2. Test takers who want to change or cancel their testing appointment times will need to provide proper notice to Pearson Vue. Test takers who opt to change or cancel their state test appointment times without providing sufficient advance notice will forfeit the exam fee.
  3. Test takers will need to present two forms of unexpired identification in order to be admitted into the Pearson Vue testing center. For instance, a valid drivers license and a social security card would be acceptable forms of identification. Test takers who do not present two forms of unexpired identification will forfeit their testing appointments and lose the exam fees they previously paid.

Financial Options to Pay for Career Training School

Let’s be real: many people do not like their dead-end jobs and badly want to enter a career pathway in a rapidly growing sector such as the medical field. Vocational school career training programs offer a convenient and affordable way for prospective students to retrain for a new career without devoting a huge amount of money or time. In fact, many trade school career training programs only take a few weeks or months to finish.

Nevertheless, the frequently occurring issue of a lack of funds is faced by some potential students who want to enroll at vocational career training schools. Even though many pupils would like to enroll, they often do not attend since they do not have the money to pay for career training classes out of pocket. A sizable number of potential trade school students either live from paycheck to paycheck or deal with other financial obligations.

The majority of prospective students who want to retrain for new careers surely have the potential to be successful and thrive in their chosen occupational paths. However, the unfortunate reality is that not too many of these students have the ability to self-fund the tuition and fees associated with vocational and career training trade schools. Also, the education sector is kept alive by the presence of students who want to learn.

We earnestly believe that good students should not be forced to miss out on great opportunities to obtain high quality career training that will enhance their lives and result in more optimal job prospects. Thus, we introduce several options to help pay for career retraining in the vocational school setting. These options include flexible payment plans and in-house financing.

Flexible payment plans allow students to start attending school with a small down payment. Under the terms of the payment plan, the remaining balance can be paid off over time without any credit checks or interest accrual. Legacy Healthcare Careers, a small trade school with healthcare training programs in the DFW area of Texas, offers flexible payment plans with as little as $200 down and no credit check for approval.

In-house financing is another way for prospective students to fund their career retraining efforts. In many instances the application process is simple with minimal paperwork, easy forms, and straightforward terms. The application process is usually expedited for in-house financing. In most cases the lender can provide 30 second approvals and transfer money into the pupil’s account in 7 business days or less.

Again, great students should not continue to miss out on opportunities to receive good career training that will lead to higher income, less stress and more occupational mobility in the employment market. Options to help cover the cost of career training in the vocational school setting include flexible payment plans and in-house financing. Do not allow your dreams to enter the medical field go unfulfilled due to lack of money.

Call Legacy Healthcare Careers CNA School at (682)626-5266 to retrain for a new career as a nursing assistant (CNA) in two weeks in the DFW metroplex area of Texas.

Definition of Job Placement Assistance

First of all, let’s start with a working definition of what job placement assistance is. Job placement assistance is a cluster of services, either formalized or informal, that focuses on the placement of people into jobs and formal employment. Job placement assistance can entail activities such as help with searching for job openings, career training, or adding names of hiring managers and business owners to one’s professional network.

The array of services that fall under the wide umbrella of job placement assistance are done to boost the chances that participating persons will successfully make the crucial transition from career training to actual jobs and gainful employment. After all, people who ask for job placement assistance want to be put into paid jobs. Thus, job placement assistance helps job seekers with their ultimate goal of securing employment.

A number of varied activities can be considered job placement assistance. For instance, attendance in job preparedness courses, completion of basic skills training, and receipt of support services can all be regarded as job placement assistance since these activities increase the likelihood that participants will land gainful employment. Other activities include the provision of an updated bulletin board with active job openings.

Legacy Healthcare Careers, a small vocational school in the Dallas /Fort Worth area of Texas, offers a variety of specific services that fall under the realm of job placement assistance. Firstly, the school offers fast, affordable career training in high-demand healthcare occupations. Second of all, the kind staff has direct partnerships with multiple local employers that can lead to potential placement in paid jobs in the healthcare field.

Third of all, Legacy Healthcare Careers offers a number of helpful aftercare services to former students who have previously graduated from one of the school’s healthcare career training programs. These aftercare services include targeted activities such as resume preparation, ongoing skills review, career advice, and possible introductions to community stakeholders who will want to hire graduates.

Scholastic Spotlight: the Importance of Classmates

Screenshot 2019-03-24 at 2.57.36 PM

Classmates, also referred to as schoolmates, are defined as students who attend at least one of the same classes together at a particular school or educational institution. Classmates are important and can serve as amazingly valuable resources to a person’s future career pathway in the healthcare industry, albeit for a number of good reasons that might not be completely apparent at the first glance.

Why are classmates so valuable? Firstly, classmates can enlarge a person’s professional and personal network. Second, classmates are a great source of knowledge and wisdom. Third, classmates can make the time at school pleasurable. Fourth, classmates can be the ones to provide character references for jobs or college applications. Finally, classmates can help each other to learn the mountains of material being taught in school.

The majority of adult learners opt to go back to school or enroll in career training classes so they can acquire job skills that will make themselves more marketable and salable in the employment marketplace. In other words, people go back to school to increase the odds of getting better jobs for higher pay. Classmates can be a helpful part of a personal network since they may know of potential workplaces that have job openings.

Furthermore, classmates can bestow a lot of free knowledge and pearls of wisdom upon each other by way of sharing their life’s experiences, backgrounds, personal stories and work histories. For instance, the 48-year-old student with 25 years of home health care-giving experience can provide useful info to her classmates on the benefits and pitfalls of giving direct care to clients in a homelike residential workplace setting.

Also, friendly relationships with classmates can enhance the social experience at school. Aristotle said that human beings are social animals and therefore naturally seek the company of others as part of their well being (Cohen, 2010). Students often take pleasure in joining one another for coffee breaks, lunch time and class sessions. These friendly bonds may extend outside school and can last for many years after graduation day.

Do not forget about professional and personal references that a job seeker needs when applying to places of employment, educational programs and so on. Hiring managers and school program directors often request character references from people who can vouch for the applicant’s habits and goodness. When a former student keeps in touch with his classmates, they will be more likely to offer character references for him.

Finally, classmates can help each other learn the material that is being covered in school. Groups of students who attend the same class may form study groups to learn and retain the information. Also, classmates can share the techniques they use to study for quizzes, exams, hands-on skills and reading assignments. Some classmates exchange phone numbers and may call or text each other when they need help or clarification.

Classmates function in all sorts of useful ways. They boost the size of a student’s personal network and can help in the job hunt. They are full of free knowledge and pearls of wisdom, and can enhance the schooling experience. They may serve as much-needed character references and can help each other learn the material. Since classmates are so very useful, they are of the utmost importance during a student’s time in school.
