If you have a good support system, I would recommend you to do the prerequisites to go directly to the RN program. If you really have to work find a job as companion for the elderly, instead of CNA. This is because CNA jobs are too physical for a pregnant woman. I have a friend that worked in a nursing home, got pregnant, lost the child with all the lifting and pulling, etc.. then got pregnant again, asked them to lift the working load a bit, so she could have less patients with total care. They did not do it, she ended up quitting in order to keep her pregnancy. My path was CNA ,LPN, and I am about to do CPNE with Excelsior. I wished I had done the RN program , only, but I did not have a support system, and had to work 3 jobs while in school.( still have 3 jobs). Be aware of schools
that charge you a lot of money for CNA courses. Do some research. Also if you do CNA and start working, some companies will pay for the studies after one year working with them. Wish you the best.
