I'm currently a CNA student, undergoing unpaid training to take my boards by working in an LTC. If you haven't heard of it, the state of California sponsors ROP classes, which make this stage of education free. My question, though, is regarding employer training. I've heard whispers about Planned Parenthood hiring newly graduated CNA's, and training them in phlebotomy to fill positions as medical technicians. So far this is all unsubstantiated, but I had hoped this community could shed a bit of light on it. So, upon graduation (around Thanksgiving), is it plausible that I could start a plebotomy course to work as a Med Tech? Also, does anyone know of an organization in Southern California that might hire a CNA student in a preceptor-type position?
