I'm in Patient Care Tech program. I'll be a CNA in September, but, everywhere I look on job boards... the employers want at least 1 year experience. Of course, there's the common complaint, "How can I get experience if you don't hire me!?"
I was wondering if any seasoned CNAs can shed some light on this topic. I've called some agencies and they require experience, as well.
Help! Please? I took this course so that I can provide patient care while I'm in Nursing school, but it sucks that I can't find a job that doesn't require experience.
I spoke with a couple CNAs who worked at my program's clinical site, and they said it only took them a week to find a job after being certified.
But HOW? Thanks for any advice in advance ladies and gentlemen
