I'm graduating soon in mid-May, and I was thinking of enrolling into a short 4-6 week CNA program in order to gain clinical experience and also find a clinical job as I apply for ABSN/MEPN programs for next fall.
I've been doing some online searching and it seems that there are very few good programs around. The only reliable one seems to be with Red Cross. They have a neat 4-week program. I've found some other programs, but many seem to be lacking in information, have weird requirements (ex: need malpractice insurance..), etc. I was wondering if anyone living in the Bay Area know of any good, short CNA programs out there.
Also, based on your experience, how long did it take for you to find a job after becoming a CNA?
