I got my CNA in June and for various reasons, I'm just now looking for a job. I applied at a major hospital in the area where I have been a volunteer for the past year. The job description says they prefer 6 months of experience, of which I have none. I went in yesterday and was able to introduce myself to the nursing manager who will be hiring people for the position and also the two assistant nurse managers who will be assisting him. They seemed to like me, and they seemed pleasantly surprised that I would come in to introduce myself. This is my dream job and I really really want to work there but I'm worried that with no experience, they won't even consider me. Has anyone ever gotten a hospital CNA job with no experience other than volunteer hours? And is there anything else I can do to make myself a more desirable candidate other than what I've already done? Thanks in advance.
