Becoming a CNA opens a world of opportunity and earning potential in the healthcare industry. Unfortunately, Federal Financial aid does not cover any CNA program. Students make an investment in themselves by funding their education. The Healthcare Institute LLC wants to make this as easy as possible. Therefore, we offer the following payment options:
The student may pay in full prior to the start of class.
The student may arrange to pay in equal weekly payments for the tuition portion of their costs. Books supplies and certification must be paid upfront. If the student is in the 3-week option, weekly payments of $350 must be made each Monday before the start of class. If the student enrolls in the 5-week option, weekly payments of $210 must be paid each Monday before the start of class. All students must be PAID IN FULL prior to starting a clinical rotation. If the balance is not settled, the student will not be able to participate in clinicals or complete the program to be approved for state certification testing.
You may obtain a loan for the full or partial tuition amount through our onsite lending partner:
