I know CNA is no longer required to start the MCCCD nursing program. Here's my concern, though. Do most students have this anyway? I'm concerned that I may be fumbling and stumbling with taking vitals, etc. when everyone else knows how to do these types of things. I'm wondering if I'd have a hard time in my first semester, or do they really teach you what you need to know anyway?
It would really mess up my schedule of classes to add a CNA class before starting nursing school
. But I'd do it if it is really important. Opinions?
