    I am in a bachelor degree program and I'm wanting to know the significance of becoming a CNA. Does it help you much in clinicals or really just get your name in the hospital? Unfortunately I would only be able to have some kind of hospital job the summer before my senior year. Is that too late?

    Eh I wouldnt bother unless you need a job, I was never a CNA. I could see it helping you to learn to see things from their perspective so that you can delegate more appropriately etc but I feel that nursing and the cna jobs are 2 separate things. Nurses sometimes have to do the job of the cna but nursing goes so far beyond that I dont see it being significant to really helping you as a nurse.
