CNA to Nursing

  1. 0 I have been told that being a CNA before you attend nursing school sometimes helps you out a lot when you are in nursing school. This past summer, I decided to obtain my CNA license and I am in my third week of nursing school. So far I am unable to tell if my experience as a CNA is going to be helpful or not. I was wondering if others thought it was a good thing to have your CNA license prior to attending nursing school?

    I think that a job that gives you direct patient care experience is helpful. Also if you work as a CNA prior to nursing school you might feel more comfortable with reposition patients, cleaning them, feeding them, taking vitals, etc. These are things you will learn at the beginning of nursing school but it is a plus if you already have this experience.
