Here’s what one student said about Hillendale Home Care and their CNA Classes:
“I received my CNA & HHA training from Hillendale. My instructors, Rhonda & Leslie, both RNs for many years are in my opinion, the best of the best. Both of them were my CNA instructors & Rhonda was my HHA instructor. Their passion, compassion, expertise & experience are evident from the very first class. When I sat for my California exam & clinical, it was very plain to see the difference of our training versus others. We were truly prepared capable & very professional. I spoke with various people about their experience at other training sites, I discovered that I had lucked out by getting some of the best class room & clinical training at the best price! The saying you get what you pay for, was totally untrue in this case. I am now a CNA & HHA & am looking forward to a career in helping provide care to seniors. I would recommend Hillendale if you are looking for training to become a CNA.” -Karen I
