thank you! I'm really looking forward to getting into nursing school...kinda stressed out about applying its really competetive...i'm really nervous about getting a cna job as well...i dont know why really...i filled out an application for home health care but they said I needed 1 year experience...i put on the application that I didn't have the one year experience but still got a call back so..i guess we'll see how that goes

schooling
don't most cna training courses only take a few weeks. you don't really do much. i've been in and out of hospitals and asisted living homes and pretty much everywhere else you can imagine and cnas really just cater to the patients needs. no real medical stuff going on there.

You will get job easily without much effort as today there are lots of jobs available for CNA's. And After completing cna training it is convenient to enter the medical field to choose your career goal. All the best!

Learn all you can learn as a CNA, because when you become a nursing student all your hands-on experience will be priceless.
