Quote from Moe.CNA
I havent enrolled at any CNA classes yet! I plan to start my CNA class on the 19th of March. Plus requirements for the CNA do not include high school diploma! Otherwise, I would have not thought about it! Plus I have sought some job sites and offers for CNA and most of them ask for the certification only! They dont ask for high school diploma! In additional, I can speak the language fluently enough to communicate but I would want to improve it to become as any native citizine here just for getting no embarrassment at my job place. Are you sure a high school diploma validates working as a CNA more than the certificate obtained?!!! Uhmmm.
I did not require any diplomas or any form of education in the CNA school I went to, however some schools
require a high school diploma/GED, associates degree.
I don't think your language barrier will be a big deal. I understand everything you wrote. Speaking another language is actually a great asset especially since you will be involved in direct patient care. You can actually build rapport/trust with a patient that speaks your language which is always a great thing. Also, you will improve your language skills as you speak to more people on the job so don't even worry about it.
I would recommend that you go further into nursing if that's what you care about. CNAs don't get paid a lot. They do get paid more in psych (in some places $18/hour) and they prefer to hire men anyway so you should look into that area.
I would recommend finding a community college to take classes to become eligible to get into the nursing program.
