I just signed up for my CNA classes and I'm really excited! I just have 2 questions/concerns:
1) I have heard that it can take months to be able to take the test to be registered with the Department of Health after completing the classes. Has anyone else had this problem? Or were you able to take the test fairly soon after finishing the course?
2) Do most CNA schools set up clinicals or do you have to find them yourself? I am attending the Nursing Assistant Training School in Tukwila, WA (if anyone from the area has heard of it...) and there is a week of scheduled clinical times for a "nursing home internship"...am I right to assume the school/instructors have probably worked this out with a local nursing home and we don't have to find one ourself?
