I have decided that I want to become a nurse. I actually have been considering it on and off for a few years now and after a 2 years of college studying CIS I decided to move to California to do nursing school. So now I am here in Southern California and every school I am looking at a "ladder system" you must get your CNA (.5 year), then your LVN (1 year), then RN (1 year).
I have the option of getting on the job training and getting my CNA working at a local Nursing Home, I would get paid and get my CNA. Or I could get it at the school but that would cost about $2000. Does it look better to get it at one or the other? Or does it not really matter?
