    The weekend class begins March 17, 2018 and when does it end? I have taken the CNA course before and I have passed the written exam, but not the clinical portion. I have to retake the course. I need to have it completed by May 1, 2018 in order to be accepted into the nursing program at UWG. Can you help me or do you know someone who can?
